PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GREEN BAY WI
650 AM CDT THU APR 24 2014

...THIS WEEK IS TORNADO AND SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS WEEK IN
WISCONSIN...

A TORNADO DRILL IS SCHEDULED FOR THIS AFTERNOON...APRIL 24...BETWEEN
1 AND 2 PM. A TEST TORNADO WATCH WILL BE ISSUED AT 1 PM. THE NATIONAL
WEATHER SERVICE WILL ISSUE A TEST TORNADO WARNING AT 145 PM FOR ALL OF
WISCONSIN. THE TEST WATCH AND WARNING WILL BE BROADCAST ON NOAA WEATHER
RADIO AND DISSEMINATED TO ALL MEDIA PARTNERS.

HERE ARE SOME BASIC TORNADO SAFETY TIPS TO REMEMBER WHEN SEVERE WEATHER
THREATENS...

WHEN A TORNADO IS SPOTTED OR A TORNADO WARNING IS ISSUED FOR YOUR
AREA...THE BEST PLACE TO BE IS BELOW GROUND LEVEL. IN A BASEMENT FIND
SOMETHING STURDY TO GET UNDER. IF YOU HAVE NO BASEMENT...GO TO THE
LOWEST LEVEL OF YOUR HOME OR BUSINESS AND MOVE TO AN INTERIOR ROOM
LIKE A BATHROOM OR CLOSET. PUT AS MANY WALLS BETWEEN YOU AND THE
STORM AS POSSIBLE.

AT SCHOOLS...CHILDREN SHOULD BE MOVED INTO INTERIOR AREAS LIKE
SMALLER ROOMS...BATHROOMS...OR HALLWAYS. CARE SHOULD BE TAKEN NOT TO
SELECT HALLWAYS THAT MAY BECOME WIND TUNNELS IF EXTERIOR DOORS ARE
BLOWN OFF. AVOID LARGE SPAN ROOMS LIKE GYMNASIUMS...AUDITORIUMS...
AND CAFETERIAS.

MOST IMPORTANTLY...KNOW IN ADVANCE WHEN TORNADOES ARE EXPECTED. MANY
LARGE TORNADO OUTBREAKS ARE WELL PREDICTED. LISTEN FOR TORNADO WATCHES
AND WARNINGS AND BE PREPARED.

ALWAYS MONITOR CURRENT AND FORECAST WEATHER CONDITIONS...AND KEEP UP TO
DATE ON THE LATEST SEVERE WEATHER WATCHES AND WARNINGS...BY LISTENING TO
NOAA WEATHER RADIO...THE VOICE OF NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE.
