Hopefully, you will hear the Tornado alert sirens going off in your neighborhoods today at 11 am. It is only a test!

The states of Missouri and Kansas will be conducting the Severe Weather Tornado Drill.

Residents should treat the drill as if it were an actual Tornado Warning.

The purpose of the drill is to test everyone’s readiness for life-threatening severe weather events such as tornadoes, flash floods, and damaging winds.

The National Weather Service will issue a Routine Weekly Test (RWT) to NOAA Weather Radios to initiate the drill.
