The eleven tornadoes that hit Virginia last year left $3 million in damage, so would you know how to react?
Registration is open for the March 12th Statewide Tornado Drill.
It is sponsored by the Virginia Department of Emergency Management and schools are required to participate. Businesses and families can practice at 9:45 a.m. that day. A test warning will be sent to NOAA Weather Radios and then be broadcast by local radio and TV stations. In a real event, take cover, go to an interior windowless room or to a basement.
