Minnesota Severe Weather Awareness Week is April 8–12, 2019
Statewide Tornado Drills scheduled for Thursday, April 11 have been canceled by the National Weather Service due to the forecasted snow storm. A make up date has not yet been scheduled.
During the week, the Department of Public Safety and the National Weather Service will be promoting severe weather safety and emergency preparedness information in the media.
This is the perfect time for families, communities, schools and local businesses to review and talk about their emergency plans and how they can prepare for the upcoming severe weather season.
Each day of the week highlights an important seasonal weather safety topic.
