Alert: Statewide Tornado Drill Begins at 10:30 Today

(Gillette, Wyo.) If you're hearing tornado sirens this morning, don't panic. The National Weather Service and Wyoming Department of Homeland Security officials will conduct a statewide tornado drill around 10:30 a.m. today. The exercise is designed to train emergency services organizations and educate people how to respond to a tornado warning. Communities may sound local warning sirens and many schools will conduct safety drills for their students. The tornado drill will also include a test of the Emergency Alert System and the test warning will interrupt local radio and television broadcasts. The general public does not need to take any action during the drill. For more information, visit the National Weather Service page. *Photo h/t NWS // Pitchengine Communities* #county17 #news
