The City of Findlay will be testing its outdoor warning sirens this week.
The test will occur on Wednesday, March 24th at 9:50 a.m. as part of the Statewide Tornado Drill.
Businesses, schools, and households are also encouraged to practice their tornado drills and emergency plans at that time.
March 21-27 is Severe Weather Awareness Week in Ohio.
The Ohio Emergency Management Agency is encouraging Ohioans to prepare for weather emergencies and to know the difference between storm watches and warnings.
A Tornado WATCH means conditions are favorable for the development of tornadoes in and near areas designated by the National Weather Service. Be ready to move to a place of safety if the watch is upgraded to a warning or if threatening weather approaches.
A Tornado WARNING means a tornado is imminent or has been sighted. Warnings indicate impending danger to life and property. Seek safe shelter immediately.
