Statewide Tornado Drill

Duration 15 minutes

Gov. Bob McDonnell is encouraging everyone across the state to participate in a tornado drill on March 12.

At 9:45 a.m., 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. The EMU community will participate by circulating a notice about the tornado drill through the standard crisis communication outlets: Via Radio, E2Campus alert system, EMU email, myemu and web page alert postings.

When the information is circulated, please practice appropriate tornado response actions. Review those on the crisis management page link below.

Last year, 11 tornadoes struck Virginia, injuring six people and causing $3 million in property damage.
