Statewide Tornado Test is Wednesday, March 18

Indiana Severe Weather Preparedness Week will run during the third full week of March.

The Indiana Broadcasters Association (IBA) in cooperation with the National Weather Service (NWS) is conducting a test of the state Emergency Alert System (EAS) on Wednesday, March 18th at 10:15 a.m. EDT (9:15 CT) that will include a Live Tornado Warning alert.

The 15-minute alert is done to ensure the system is working properly in the event of an actual tornado.

The test is part of Severe Weather Preparedness Week which runs March 15-21 and includes coordinated efforts to work with their residents, businesses, and government agencies across Indiana on preparedness activities.

In the event of severe or inclement weather, the test will be rescheduled and held on the morning of Thursday, March 19th.
