Prepare yourself for tornadoes and severe weather

You will likely not have to worry about a tornado hitting the area when sirens are turned on Thursday, but local communities in Door and Kewaunee Counties hope you still take it seriously. The drills are a part of Tornado and Severe Weather Awareness Week, a statewide effort to make sure families, businesses and schools are prepared for such emergencies. Tornado sirens are expected to sound at 1:45 p.m. and 6:45 p.m. Thursday so everyone can participate. Door County Emergency Management and Communications Director Dan Kane says you can never have enough practice.

Kane says this week is a good time to make sure you have a stocked emergency kit ready to use in case of a tornado or another severe weather event and make sure you know how everything works.
