Iowa Severe Weather Awareness Week

Monday, March 26, 2018

Statewide Severe Weather Awareness Week is an opportunity to increase awareness of and response to severe weather hazards. It is scheduled in the spring, targeting a time before the spring severe weather "season" typically begins in the state. A tornado drill will be conducted during awareness week, when test tornado warnings are issued at a predetermined time. This years test is scheduled for Wednesday March 28th at 10:00 am. Please mark your calendar and plan to participate in the drill for your local area, as this is an opportunity to test your communication methods as if it were a real situation. The bottom line: Living in the most severe weather prone country in the world, your best defense is to be both prepared and informed. Know the local warning systems; Invest in a NOAA Weather Radio; Stay informed; Take action – indoors or out!
