COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Emergency officials are urging residents to participate in the statewide tornado drill scheduled to occur after a winter storm blasts parts of Ohio with snow and sleet.

A spokeswoman for the Ohio Emergency Management Agency says the tornado drill set for 9:50 a.m. Wednesday was expected to proceed despite the wintry conditions.

The state tests its Emergency Alert System during the drill, and many counties activate their outdoor warning sirens. The state urged families, schools and businesses to join in and practice their plans for responding to severe weather emergencies.

The exercise is held during National Severe Weather Preparedness Week.
