Tornado and Severe Weather Awareness Week is April 9-13. There will be a mock tornado warning today from 145 til 2pm

Governor Scott Walker has proclaimed the week of April 9-13, 2018, as Tornado and Severe
Weather Awareness Week in Wisconsin. This is a perfect time for school administrators,
safety officers, and faculty to review severe weather safety procedures and participate in the
annual tornado drill.

On Thursday, April 12, 2018, two statewide tornado drills are planned. A mock tornado
watch will be issued statewide by the NWS at 1:00 p.m. The NWS will follow it with a
statewide mock tornado warning at 1:45 p.m. The afternoon drill ends at 2:00 p.m.
An evening drill is scheduled on the same day with a mock tornado warning to take place at
6:45 p.m. This drill provides your students and their families a great opportunity to practice
severe weather safety plans at home.
