Statewide tornado drill canceled due to coronavirus closings

>>Severe weather will not take break for coronavirus

The drill was originally planned as part of Severe Weather Awareness Week. However, the committee said that because many businesses and all Ohio schools are closed, the drill would be canceled. 

OCSWA added that Ohioans should still be prepared, not just for the coronavirus, but also for thunderstorms, tornadoes and floods.
