The weather forecast is calling for a chance of thunderstorms today — which frankly sounds far better than snow — but volatile spring weather can also bring dangerous weather conditions, which is why this a great time to refresh our countywide preparedness for tornadoes.
March is a little early for tornado concerns in our region but everything about this winter has been off-schedule so we’re not taking anything for granted.
With that in mind, the Portage County’s Office of Emergency Management has scheduled a countywide tornado drill for March 23rd at 9:50 am to help remind all of us that preparation is the key to safety.
Here’s a copy of the press release put out by the County and if you haven’t already done so, I encourage you to consider uploading the free County emergency weather app.
You never know when it might just save your life.
