Are you Prepared for a Tornado?
A statewide tornado drill will take place Wednesday, March 4th, at 9:30 AM. The National Weather Service will activate the Emergency Alert System and NOAA weather alert radios to signal the event. This is an opportunity for everyone to practice their actions in the event of a tornado warning. It is also a good time for businesses and schools to implement and practice their emergency plans. The Winston-Salem/Forsyth County School System will be participating in this drill.
In addition, the National Weather Service and the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Office of Emergency Management, will be providing SKYWARN (Severe Weather Training). Click here
