Statewide Tornado Drill in Virginia

Posted:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - More than 1 million Virginians have signed up to participate in a statewide tornado drill.
    
The drill set for 9:45 a.m. on Tuesday is a joint effort between the state Department of Emergency Management and the National Weather Service.
    
At that time, NOAA Weather Radio will broadcast a test warning from the National Weather Service. The test warning will then be aired by television and radio stations.
    
When the test warning is heard, participants should move to a safe area, such as a basement, bathroom or closet on the lowest level of a building.
    
Sixty-seven tornadoes have struck Virginia in the last three years, killing 10 people and injuring more than 100.
