Severe Weather Awareness Week

On February 23rd, at 11:49 AM, Ron Dodson posted the following in Info for Meade County Families on Facebook:

"This year's Severe Weather Awareness Week is March 1-7 (Monday - Sunday) 2021.

The Statewide Tornado Drill will be conducted WEDNESDAY, March 3 at 10:07 AM EST (9:07 AM CST)

For the Tornado Drill, we will be using a TEST Tornado Warning VTEC code to activate the Emergency Alert System, except in the counties served by NWS Wilmington OH, per agreement with Cincinnati area broadcasters. The Test code will NOT activate the Wireless Emergency Alert, but some residents may receive alerts or push notifications through certain third-party apps.

Participation at the County or local level is encouraged, within prevailing KYEM and/or CDC guidelines. This is a great opportunity to review and practice your tornado safety plan, whether you are at home, school, or your workplace.

The annual KET call-in show has been canceled due to COVID and the stretch of relentless winter weather during the middle of February."
