OHIO SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS WEEK
Each spring, the Governor declares a week for severe weather awareness in the State of Ohio. As part of Severe Weather Awareness Week in Ohio, a statewide tornado drill is designated to give residents, businesses, and schools the opportunity to practice taking protective measures in the event of a tornado. Wood County does activate the outdoor warning siren system for this test (unless actual severe weather is threatening the area). This year’s dates are as follows:
Severe Weather Awareness Week in Ohio: March 21st through March 25th, 2016
Statewide Tornado Drill: Wednesday, March 23, 2016 at 9:50 a.m.
