Statewide tornado drill in Iowa

Don't be alarmed when you hear tornado sirens Wednesday. Iowa is participating in a statewide tornado drill Wednesday morning from 10 to 10:30.

Many schools and assisted living facilities will also be using the day to test their preparations, something emergency management officials think everyone should do.

Itâ??s a smart idea to run through your familyâ??s plan a few times a year so everyone is on the same page.

Are you prepared for severe weather?
