Tornado drill is March 8

Monday, February 28, 2011

Missouri's 2011 Severe Weather Awareness Week has one goal: to save lives as the threat for severe weather across the state transitions from snow and ice to severe thunderstorms and flooding.

The National Weather Service, the State Emergency Management Agency and local emergency management offices will conduct the 37th annual state tornado drill at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 8 as part of Missouri Severe Weather Awareness Week, which runs from March 7 through March 11. If Missouri is experiencing statewide severe weather conditions, the drill will be moved to Thursday, March 10 at 1:30 p.m.
