State-wide Tornado Drill April 14, 2011

To encourage citizens to be prepared for severe weather, Wisconsin Emergency
Management (WEM) and the National Weather Service (NWS) are once again
promoting Wisconsin’s Tornado and Severe Weather Awareness Week. The
statewide tornado drill will be held on Thursday, April 14, 2011. Many schools
and businesses participate in the annual daytime drill. Wisconsin Department of
Public Instruction, WEM and the NWS have distributed tornado and severe
weather information to schools. If there is actual severe weather on April 14, the
tornado drill will be postponed until Friday, April 15, with the watch/warnings
issued at the same time. Below are the scheduled times for the mock
watches/warnings. Keep in mind that you will not hear weather radio tone-alerts
for the mock tornado watch and warnings on certain weather radios. In these
cases you will have to manually turn on your weather radio in order to hear the
mock tornado watch and warnings.
