THE TEST TORNADO WARNING HAS EXPIRED. REPEAT…THE TEST TORNADO WARNING HAS EXPIRED. THIS CONCLUDES THE WARNING PHASE OF THE 2012 TORNADO DRILL. THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION.
For information on how you can stay safe during a Tornado Warning, go to: http://www.crh.noaa.gov/images/dmx/Preparedness/PDFs/Tornadoes.pdf
The National Weather Service has issued a TEST TORNADO WARNING for all counties in Iowa until 10:30-a.m. The Test Tornado Warning is part of the Statewide Tornado Drill taking place as part of Severe Weather Awareness Week in Iowa.
If this had been an actual Tornado Warning, broadcasters would have instructed you to take cover immediately. Now is the time to practice what you would do in the event a tornado threatens in your county, including where you would go to find safe shelter in your home, school or place of business, and your family’s plan on keeping in touch if you are separated by a disaster. It’s also a time for local governments to put into effect their plan for emergency response during and following a Tornado Warning.
