There will be a statewide tornado drill at 10am today as part of Severe Weather Awareness Week. We at KNIA/KRLS will also be testing our equipment, including our Emergency Alert System and our back-up generators, so the coverage goes on even when the power is off. Marion County Emergency Management Coordinator Jeff Anderson says that in the case of a tornado, you should head below ground or in a small, windowless room. He says this would be the perfect time to turn to KNIA/KRLS and get the local storm information.
