Statewide tornado drill pushed back to Thursday

March 8, 2010, 11:30 a.m. Updated March 8, 2010, 3:00 p.m.


Citing the threat of actual severe weather Tuesday, the National Weather Service in Kansas has canceled the statewide tornado drill scheduled for that day.

The statewide tornado drill is typically a major part of Severe Weather Awareness Week, which runs through March 12 in Kansas.

The drill has been rescheduled for Thursday at 1:30 p.m.

Kansas University had also planned to test its emergency alert system Tuesday, but canceled that after the National Weather pushed back its statewide drill. KU had not yet decided whether to pick Thursday as its make-up date.

The National Weather Service encourages Kansans to use Severe Weather Awareness Week as an opportunity to plan for an emergency at home and at work.
