Get Swept Up in Safety: Tuesday is the Statewide Tornado Drill
Monday Mar 20, 2017 6:58pm
Angola, IN

Indiana has endured 32 tornadoes since August of last year. As a part of Severe Weather Preparedness Week, the Indiana Department of Homeland Security is encouraging Hoosiers to take steps to prepare for tornadoes and participate in the statewide tornado drill on Tuesday, March 21.

The drills will be at 10:15 a.m. and 7:35 p.m. A test of the Emergency Alert System will sound both in the morning and evening on commercial radio, television networks and all-hazard radios.

Although Indiana has experienced a rash of tornadoes in the last nine months, the statewide tornado drill brings to attention that March, April and May are Indiana’s most severe tornado months. The statewide drills provide an excellent opportunity for families, schools and businesses to practice their weather safety action plan.

Randy Brown, Steuben County Emergency Management Director says that Steuben County has 32 Tornado Sirens through the county and the city of Angola.

Brown advised that Steuben County Tornado Sirens will be activated for the State Wide Drill at 10:15 a.m. and again at 7:35 p.m. on Tuesday.

When activated, Tornado Sirens will cycle a "solid" "waile" tone for a period of 3 minutes.
