A statewide tornado drill will be conducted at 10 a.m. Tuesday, March 3.
This drill will be initiated by an actual tornado warning with “TEST” wording throughout the message, which will be issued for every county in the state of Missouri.
The message will be broadcast on NOAA weather alert radios and many broadcast media outlets.
Many communities will also test their outdoor warning sirens at this time.
