Observing Severe Weather Awareness Week
April 24, 2013 5:42 PM
If you were out and about between 10:00 and 10:30 this Wednesday morning, you probably heard something you don’t hear every day.
The National Weather Service and the South Dakota Department of Emergency Management declared this week Severe Weather Awareness week in South Dakota, and a statewide drill was conducted.
Radio and television stations also ran a test warning and the public was encouraged to practice their tornado safety procedures, and talk about ways to keep themselves and their families safe in the event of an actual tornado.
