Next week is Georgia’s Severe Weather Awareness Week.  Severe weather may strike with only a few minutes of advance warning.  This annual drill gives everyone the opportunity to test their tornado emergency procedures.

Next week on Wednesday, February 4th, the National Weather Service forecast offices serving Georgia will transmit a practice tornado warning.  The warning will be transmitted through NOAA Weather Radio.  The test warning will be issued for all 159 counties in Georgia.  The practice tornado warning will be at 9:10 AM EST.

In the event of inclement weather in the state next Wednesday, the drill will be conducted on Friday February 6th at the same time.

Stay tuned to AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio, as we will be having more information on Severe Weather Awareness all next week.
