Tornado Drills Thursday, April 20
Apr 18, 2017

April 17-21, 2017 is Wisconsin’s Tornado and Severe Weather Awareness Week 

On Thursday, April 20, two statewide tornado drills are planned.  A mock tornado watch will be issued by the National Weather Service at 1:00PM.  A mock tornado warning will follow at 1:45PM with the drill ending at 2:00PM.  The mock alerts will be issued on NOAA weather radios and many communities will sound their tornado sirens.  An evening drill is scheduled on the same day with a mock tornado warning to take place at 6:45PM.

The tornado drill will take place even if the sky is cloudy, dark and or rainy.  If actual severe storms are expected in the state on Thursday the tornado drills will be postponed until Friday, April 21 with the same times.
