The Wood County Emergency Management Agency is reminding residents and businesses that this week is Spring Severe Weather Awareness Week in Ohio.
As a part of the event, there will be a statewide tornado drill on Wednesday at 9:50 a.m.
Outdoor warning sirens in Wood County will be activated for the statewide drill.
The National Weather Service will also activate the NOAA Weather Radio Alert System at that time to test weather radios and announce the drill.
Residents and businesses are asked to take this opportunity to establish, review, and practice their procedures in seeking safe shelter when severe weather occurs. Everyone should stay alert for rapidly changing weather conditions when a "watch" is issued and be prepared to take immediate safety measures in the event a "warning" is issued or weather conditions warrant taking action. The EMA emphasizes the importance of having a safety action plan for severe weather before storms threaten the area.
For more information on severe storms and storm safety, contact the Wood County EMA at 419-354-9269, visit the National Weather Service website at www.nws.noaa.gov or the Ohio Committee for Severe Weather Awareness website at www.weathersafety.ohio.gov.
