Tuesday afternoon at 1:30, Missourians statewide will hear tornado sirens go off for the second day in a row. Rest assured, you still have nothing to worry about.
Monday's test, heard at 11:00 a.m., was the regularly scheduled test of emergency sirens in St. Louis County.
Tuesday's version is part of a statewide Tornado drill in conjunction with Severe Weather Awareness Week. At 1:30 p.m. the National Weather service will issue a Tornado Warning as part of the exercise, triggering the sirens.
The test is done to draw attention awareness to the importance of knowing what to do and where you'd go in case this was the real thing.
Other days this week are devoted to safety issues with severe thunderstorms, flash floods and to promote the idea of having a NOAA Weather Radio.
Do you know what you'd do in case of a tornado?
