KY Statewide Tornado Drill, Wednesday March 2, 2022

By Mike Keltner, Director
Adair Co. Emergency Management

The Kentucky Statewide Tornado Drill will take place at 9:07amCT on Wednesday March 2, 2022. The Adair County outdoor warning sirens will be activated during the drill.

Remember, if there is a Tornado Watch, pay extra close attention to the weather and be ready to act, because tornadoes are possible. If there is a Tornado Warning, find shelter immediately, and move to an interior room on the lowest floor of a sturdy building, because a tornado is occurring or will shortly. Avoid windows and cover your head to protect yourself from flying debris. Taking action early can help save lives!

Video: What to do during a tornado

A short video from the National Weather Service. If your area is under a tornado warning, would you know what to do to stay safe? You may only have a few minutes to get to safety. Knowing what actions to take when a tornado threatens your area will make you a Force of Nature and is an important step in building a Weather-Ready Nation.
