Time to take action: tornado sirens come alive during state-wide drill

Posted:
(KTTC) -

This time each year, sirens blare across the Midwest, giving all of us a chance to prepare for the worse, if or when it happens. 

Minnesota's Severe Weather Awareness Week reaches its peak Thursday with state-wide tornado drills. Schools, businesses, and families are all encouraged to create an action plan and practice it through. 

The first sirens will come to life at 1:45 p.m., when students and coworkers will take shelter.  At 6:45 p.m., another drill gives second shift workers and families a chance to take part.
