This afternoon, tornado sirens blared across Springfield, Greene County and throughout other parts of Missouri as part of the statewide tornado drill. KSMU’s Missy Shelton reports.
(sound of tornado sirens)
That was the sound in central Springfield as tornado sirens droned on for several minutes, giving schools, businesses and families the opportunity to participate in a coordinated tornado drill.Ryan Nicholls is the director of the Office of Emergency Management for Springfield-Greene County.He says participating in this yearly drill is important.
Even though the tornado sirens seem loud when you’re standing outside, they’re not designed to be heard indoors. Nicholls says that’s why he advocates purchasing a weather radio.
Today’s tornado drill may be especially relevant as some storms are moving into the Ozarks this evening.
