Public Information Statement

Statement as of 6:00 AM EST on March 04, 2015


... The annual statewide tornado drill will occur today at 9:30 am
EST...

As a part of North Carolina's severe weather awareness week... today
at 9:30 am EST... the National Weather Service in cooperation with
local broadcasters will conduct the annual statewide tornado drill
in the form of a required monthly test on all NOAA Weather Radio and
public alert systems. The alarm test will activate the state
emergency alert system and be carried by local radio broadcasters.
This will allow schools... business... and residents the opportunity to
practice their tornado drills and safety plans. Every school...
business... and family across the state is strongly encouraged to
participate in the statewide tornado drill.

There are a couple important things to remember about today's
statewide tornado drill.

First... the drill will be broadcast on NOAA Weather Radio and the
emergency alert system via the required monthly test. There will
not be an actual Tornado Warning issued.

This drill and monthly test will take the place of the usual weekly
NOAA Weather Radio alert test. That is... there will not be a weekly
radio test done between 11 am and noon today.

Most NOAA Weather Radio receivers do not sound an audible alert for
the monthly test product... but instead... may have a blinking light
on the display to indicate that a monthly test was received. As
such... when the monthly test for the statewide tornado drill is
initiated at 9:30 am EST this morning... there is a good chance that
your NOAA Weather Radio will not sound an alarm.

Since your NOAA Weather Radio may not sound an alarm at the time the
drill is issued... you should manually turn on your NOAA Weather
Radio receiver five minutes before the start of the drill... and
simply listen to the audio broadcast to hear when the monthly test
is issued... and that will mark the beginning of the statewide
tornado drill. Or... you can simply plan to start the tornado drill
on your own at 9:30 am.

Finally... there will be no follow-up statements issued by the NWS to
mark the end of the statewide tornado drill. It will simply be
over when your school... business... organization... or family feels
that you have adequately practiced your tornado shelter procedures.
