...Tornado Drill Scheduled...

A statewide tornado warning drill will be conducted in South
Dakota on Wednesday, April 21 between 9:00 and 9:30 AM MDT / 10:00
and 10:30 AM CDT.

The test warning will be transmitted on this NOAA Weather Radio
station with the warning alarm and through the Emergency Alert
System on local media. The scroll on television and cable TV
systems will look like a real warning, although the audio message
will be identified as a test. Many communities will sound outdoor
warning sirens and schools will conduct tornado drills.

The drill is being conducted as part of Severe Weather
Preparedness Week, which is April 19th through 23rd. Additional
information is available on our website
