Duck And Cover For Today's Tornado Drill

It's only a test, but when the tornado warnings sound this morning, state officials encourage Kentucky residents to practice a tornado drill and emergency plan.

Ironically, bad weather preempted the statewide drill last week, and officials rescheduled for 10:07 a.m. EDT Tuesday. The drill will be triggered by the National Weather Service offices in Kentucky, activating weather alert radios, outdoor warning sirens, mobile devices and various media broadcast warning messages.

The warning messages will emphasize that the announcement is a test and not an actual warning.
