From Local Sources 

AREA WIDE -- It’s Severe Weather Preparedness Week, and officials will be conducting a statewide tornado drill this morning at 10:15 a.m. (eastern).

At that time, tornado sirens across the state will be activated, and many schools and businesses will also take part.

Experts say this is the perfect time for families, schools and businesses to practice their tornado precautions, including having substantial shelter in the event of a tornado, and an emergency kit with medicine, first aid items and food and water for three days.
