Update: The National Weather Service has postponed the EAS Tornado Test until March 24th.
On March 23 the NWS will test the plans and responses to a live EAS Tornado Test (TOR) to take place between 10:00-10:30am. This event is being held in conjunction with Severe Weather Awareness Week and in preparation for the upcoming tornado season.
Be sure to check the operational status of your EAS boxes and communicate the upcoming test with the general public so they will be aware it is only a test. An email reminder will be sent to all stations in the weeks ahead.
