Severe Weather Preparedness Week here

Now that meteorological spring is upon us, thoughts turn to severe weather season here in Illinois and the rest of the Midwest.

This is Severe Weather Preparedness Week which includes a statewide tornado drill, routine NOAA weather radio tests and even a social media tornado drill.

Weather experts say it is a good time to review personal weather safety plans for home, work, school, the road and elsewhere. The special week allowed decision makers to review preparedness plans, ensuring they can adequately monitor weather in order to shelter individuals.

The National Weather Service suggests we all have weather safety procedures at school, home, work, the road, places of worship and other locations.
