(S.D.) - SD to hold statewide tornado drill
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A statewide tornado drill is slated for South Dakota on Wednesday morning.
Tornado sirens will be sounded during the drill, and the Emergency Alert System will activate, taking over local television and radio broadcasts with warnings.
On televisions, the visual scroll will look like a real tornado warning, while the audio will identify the incident as a test.
Officials say local emergency response agencies and schools might conduct exercises and drills during the tornado alert.
