The National Weather Service will conduct a  Statewide Tornado Drill at 1:30 p.m., today, Tuesday, March 4th.

As has been the case for the past 4 years, the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) has granted a waiver to the state of Kansas which will allow The National Weather Service to use the actual Emergency Alert System (EAS) code TOR for the tornado drill message. This means that NOAA Weather Radios that are set to receive the TOR code will activate for the test tornado warning.
