Emergency sirens around Ozaukee County are expected to sound at 1:45 p.m. Thursday, April 18, during a statewide tornado and severe weather drill.

    The drill, which will last an hour, will occur unless severe storms are expected in the state at the time. Then, the drill will be postponed to Friday.

    If severe storms are possible on Friday as well, the drill will be cancelled.

    The drill includes a mock tornado watch — when tornados are possible — at 1 p.m. followed at 1:45 p.m. by a mock tornado warning.

    In addition to the sirens, the alerts will be broadcast by television and radio stations, including NOAA weather radios, around the state.
