Statewide Tornado Drill is Two Weeks Away

Posted at 2:30 p.m.

statewide tornado drill March 11, 2014When it comes to tornadoes, there’s no such thing as a “tornado season.”  Tornadoes can strike anywhere, anytime, and you need to know the drill. The annual statewide tornado drill is just two weeks away — Tuesday, March 11. Are you registered to participate?

More than 391,000 Virginians are already signed up and will participate in the tornado drill at 9:45 a.m. on March 11. With at least three tornadoes EF-O tornadoes in Virginia just last month, there’s no better time to practice tornado safety.

Tornadoes are nature’s most violent storms. They can appear suddenly without warning and can be invisible until dust and debris are picked up or a funnel cloud appears. Be prepared to act quickly.

Participating is easy. All you’ll need to do to prepare your home or business for a tornado is to register for this year’s tornado drill at Ready Virginia.

    The registration links seem to be only a sloppy survey, not a registration. No indication how to participate.
