Statewide Tornado Drill:

Sirens will be activated at 9:50 a.m. Wednesday as part of the annual test

Tornado sirens will be tested across the state Wednesday morning as part of a yearly drill.

At 9:50 a.m. on Wednesday, March 23, each local community will participate in the statewide tornado drill and test its Emergency Alert System. Counties will activate their outdoor warning sirens one time for three minutes, a longer tone than used during the regular Wednesday noon test.

Businesses, schools and households are also encouraged to practice their tornado drills and emergency plans during this time. The test coincides with Ohio's Severe Weather Awareness Week (March 20-26), which encourages all residents to prepare for spring and summer severe weather and potential home emergencies.
