Severe Weather Week Tornado Drills Sirens

Severe Weather Awareness Week in Minnesota and Wisconsin is this week and tornado sirens across both states will be tested today as part of the state's annual tornado drill.

Todd Shea, Meteorologist in Charge for the National Weather Service in La Crosse, says tornado drills for both states are scheduled to occur today at 1:45 pm and 6:45 pm.

Shea says the drill gives Minnesotans a chance to review their emergency plans and practice what they would do in the event of an actual tornado.

Sirens normally sound for about three minutes during tornado drills, and then go silent.
