Statewide tornado drill in Kentucky postponed until March 10
A statewide tornado drill is being conducted that day. A tornado warning test message will be issued at about 10:07 a.m. EST. Outdoor warning sirens will sound, weather alert radios will activate, and television and radio stations and mobile devices will broadcast the alert. The drill, originally set for March 3, was rescheduled due to a forecast for inclement weather.
Kentucky Emergency Management says everyone is encouraged to participate, including individuals, businesses, hospitals, nursing homes, educators and government agencies. The idea is to practice a tornado safety plan and update an emergency plan that considers all types of hazards.
