Tornado testings to be held today
Posted: 03/25/14 10:12
This week is Severe Weather Awareness Week for the state of Nebraska. Mike Moritz with the National Weather Service in Hastings says it's never too early to start preparing for severe weather season. As part of the week's events, a statewide tornado drill will be conducted by the National Weather Service on the following date on Wednesday morning between 10 & 11. The purpose of the drill is to ensure that Nebraskans can adequately receive a tornado watch and warning, and to practice any actions which would be taken to protect your life in the event of a real tornado. The test will come through all communication channels which are normally used for severe weather alerts. That does include here on KHAS Radio.
