Threat of tornado postpones drill

Tuesday, March 9, 2010

ST. LOUIS -- Statewide tornado drills scheduled today in Missouri and Kansas have been postponed because of a small risk of an actual tornado.

The National Weather Service postponed the drills Monday to avoid any confusion. Thunderstorms are possible in parts of both states today.

The drills are now scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Thursday in both states.

The National Weather Service and the State Emergency Management Agency have declared this week to be Severe Weather Awareness Week for Missouri. Officials are urging residents to develop an understanding of weather safety issues and to have a plan in place if bad weather occurs.
