UPDATE: Warning Siren Test Cancelled

The statewide emergency drill previously scheduled for Wednesday has been cancelled due to threat of potential severe weather across the state. The City of Findlay had planned to test the warning sirens as part of the Statewide Tornado Drill.

March 20-26 is Severe Weather Awareness Week in Ohio.

Area residents are encouraged to still prepare for weather emergencies and to know the difference between storm watches and warnings.

For example:

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.
