Weather permitting, the statewide tornado drill will be held tomorrow (Thursday) afternoon, with a mock tornado watch declared at 1:00 and a mock tornado warning issued at 1:45. Warning sirens will sound.
Kewaunee County Emergency Management Director Lori Hucek says this is the time to practice your family’s severe weather plan.
Hucek says if you are not at home when a storm strikes, you should have a pre-determined meeting place set up, or make arrangements for one person to be everyone’s point of contact.
If the tornado drill is cancelled due to the weather, it will be held Friday afternoon.
