-This week is Wisconsin’s Tornado and Severe Weather Awareness Week.

The Clark County Emergency Management Department wants to remind county residents that today a statewide tornado drill is planned. At 1:00pm, the National Weather Service will issue a statewide mock tornado watch and at 1:45pm a statewide mock tornado warning. Many radio and TV stations will participate in the drill. In addition, NOAA weather radios (also known as emergency weather radios) will issue alert messaging. This is an ideal opportunity for schools, businesses and families to practice safe procedures for severe weather.

New this year will be a second drill at 6:45 PM. A Mock Tornado Warning will be issued. There will be no Mock Tornado Watch issued with the evening drill. Clark County will be participating in the drill and outdoor warning sirens will be activated. The tornado drill will take place even if the sky is cloudy, dark and/or rainy. If actual severe storms are expected in the state today, the tornado drill will be postponed until tomorrow, Friday, April 21st, with the same times. If severe storms are possible Friday the drill will be cancelled.
