IU Notify Systems To Be Tested During Tornado Drills Today

Although snow covers the ground, two statewide tornado drills scheduled for Wednesday will remind Hoosiers that severe weather season is officially here. The test is part of Indiana’s Severe Weather Awareness week.

The drills are scheduled to run some time after 10 a.m. and 7:15 p.m. by the National Weather Service, which will in turn activate local notification systems including the county tornado sirens.

IU faculty, staff and students across the state will receive a Tornado Warning notification test message by e-mail, text message and social media using the university’s emergency notification system IU-Notify.

The drills are planned to give emergency officials, residents, schools and businesses a chance to test and review emergency plans.
