Storm drills and training prepare for spring weather


February 25, 2019 - 10:34 AM

Spring is approaching — yes, really — which means the threat of severe weather soon will be upon our neck of the woods.

March 5 is the designated day for the statewide tornado drill. All outdoor storm sirens will be tested that day at 10 a.m., weather permitting. The FCC has slotted March 7 as a backup day.

In addition, the National Weather Service will offer its annual Storm Fury On The Plains spotter training session from 6:30 to 8:45 p.m. March 11 at the Bowlus Fine Arts Center.
