Washington County will again participate in a Statewide Tornado Drill in cooperation with the National Weather Service and Wisconsin Emergency Management. The drill will be held on Thursday, April 12, 2018, beginning with a “test” tornado watch issued at 1:00 p.m. and a “test” tornado warning to be issued at approximately 1:45 p.m. This portion of the drill will conclude at 2:00 p.m. Then there will be a second “test” tornado warning issued at 6:45 p.m. This will allow families to practice their home emergency procedures as well as the second shift of area businesses/agencies. NOTE: there will be no “test” tornado watch issued prior to the evening test – just the warning at 6:45p.m. This portion of the drill will conclude at 7:00 p.m.
