The Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency (GEMA/HS) is holding a statewide tornado drill Wednesday, Nov. 4, at 9:30 a.m. This event coincides with Fall Severe Weather Preparedness Day.
“Tornadoes can occur anywhere in Georgia at any time, so it’s important to be prepared,” said Chris Stallings, Director of GEMA/HS. “Knowing how to properly respond to this type of event can save lives.”
The National Weather Service (NWS) will send out a customized Routine Weekly Test (RWT) at 9:30 a.m. via NOAA Weather Radio. GEMA/HS encourages all Georgians to participate in the drill.
