Tuesday siren to test for tornado preparedness

SoVaNow.com / March 20, 2017
If you hear the wail of sirens Tuesday morning, be aware: a statewide tornado drill will be conducted at 9:45 a.m.

The Town of South Boston Emergency Services will conduct a siren test as part of this event. Citizens should hear a long continuous siren blast during this exercise. This test should only last for approximately 3-5 minutes.

All National Weather Service Offices serving Virginia will issue a test tornado warning message at that time. The purpose of this drill is to provide schools,
businesses and residents of the Commonwealth with the opportunity to activate and test their emergency plans for tornadoes.

The Emergency Alert System (WAS) will also be activated as if the drill was an actual tornado warning, but the messages will be clearly marked with “This is a test tornado warning.”

If widespread severe weather threatens on that date, the drill will be moved to Wednesday at 9:45 a.m.
