As part of Severe Weather Awareness Week, Iowa held a statewide tornado drill yesterday morning.  The purpose of the drill is to encourage residents and emergency officials to think about their plans if a tornado was to hit.  During this time of year, when warranted, the National Weather Service puts out watches and warnings.

At KCII, when a warning is issued, we provide Severe Weather Action Team coverage for the duration of the warning.  This coverage includes reports from WeatherEye meteorologists, as well as spotters and emergency officials from around the area.
