Tornado drills will be held Thursday, April 18

As part of Severe Weather Awareness Week, tornado drills will be conducted throughout Minnesota on Thursday, April 18 at 1:45 p.m. and 6:55 p.m. These times will allow families and businesses to practice their response to severe thunderstorms, straight line winds or tornados. If you’re home during one of the drills, take a few minutes to talk with the members of your household about where you’ll take shelter. This is also an excellent time to check on what kind of safety supplies you have on hand to get you through an emergency.
