Severe Weather Awareness Week Voluntary Statewide Tornado Drill

Posted on: March 16th, 2019 by webdesign No Comments

March 24-30 is Michigan’s Severe Weather Awareness Week and, as part of this event, the Michigan State Police, Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division is encouraging businesses, organizations, families, and individuals to be a part of a voluntary statewide tornado drill scheduled for 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 27. While tornadoes can occur any time of the year, they are especially common during the late spring and early summer months. As one of nature’s most violent storms, they can devastate homes and property in just seconds. The average lead time for tornadoes to develop is 10 to 15 minutes, which means residents need to be ready to react quickly when a warning is issued.
