The National Weather Service will conduct a Tornado Drill on WEDNESDAY, March 28th, at 10 a.m. with the TEST Tornado Warning drill at 1015 a.m. CDT. Please note the data change! The purpose of this drill is to ensure that Nebraskans and Iowans can adequately receive a Tornado Warning and can practice any actions that would be taken in the event of a real tornado. The test warning will be sent through all communication channels normally used for severe weather dissemination.
