Weather alert radios will go off, outdoor warning sirens may sound, and many television and radio stations will broadcast the alert during the drill.

The drill allows all Kentuckians the opportunity to practice tornado safety, according to officials.

If there is inclement weather on that day, the Statewide Tornado Drill will be postponed or cancelled.
