As tornado season approaches us, everyone is making sure they are prepared for the worst.

This week is Severe Weather Preparedness Week in Indiana. This week is a way to educate and stress the importance of severe weather and what courses of action to take in case of an emergency.

To go along with Severe Weather Preparedness Week, the National Weather Service, the Indiana Department of Homeland Security, the Indiana Department of Education, and the Indiana State Police, will conduct the Statewide Tornado Exercise. This will take place on Tuesday at around 10:15 a.m. CST.

Dubois County will be participating in the upcoming exercise. Make note that the sirens in the county will be tested that day as well. Should actual severe weather be a threat that day, the exercise will be held on March 19. There will be no evening exercise. Your participation in this annual exercise will help to improve your tornado preparedness and severe storms awareness programs and plans.

The goal is to prevent, if possible, the potential number of deaths and injuries from tornadoes and other severe storms this season.

For more information, please contact Tammy Humbert at Dubois County Emergency Management at (812) 482-2202.
