Statewide Tornado Drill- April 11

April 10, 2018

Marquette, Mich.– With Gov. Rick Snyder proclaiming April 8-11 as Severe Weather Awareness Week, the Michigan State Police, Emergency Management, and Homeland Security Division is encouraging businesses, organizations, families, and individuals to be a part of a voluntary statewide tornado drill at 1:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday, April 11.

Tornadoes can develop rapidly, with little to no warning. Due to their unpredictable nature, we must be ready well in advance. That means you should know where to go and what to do during a tornado – both at home and at work.

Take this moment to join your neighbors and friends and practice your plans. By doing so, you will be prepared when it counts. Learn more at (
