Next week, April 16-20 is Severe Weather Awareness Week. Minnesota, the National Weather Service and many local governments, have activities planned all week, including weather drills scheduled for Thursday, April 19.
Assuming no real severe weather, most Minnesota counties are participating in the drills on April 19. The daytime alert and sirens are scheduled for 1:45 in most counties, with an evening drill at 6:55 pm.
This allows people to participate at work (first or second shift) and at home. You should have a plan for seeking shelter for both. This is a great chance to plan drills at home and at work.
