The statewide tornado drill will be held today at 1:30 p.m.
The drill, an annual part of Severe Weather Awareness Week in Kansas, was postponed from Tuesday because of the rainy weather. The drill is not held on cloudy days because authorities don’t want to confuse residents into thinking there is an actual tornado threat.
Students in schools across the Sunflower State will practice what they will do if a tornado warning is issued. Weather officials say this is a perfect opportunity for businesses and families to review what they would do if a tornado threatens.
