The National Weather Service, the State Emergency Management Agency and Missouri's local emergency management offices urge Missourians to use Missouri Severe Weather Awareness Week, March 3-7, to plan and prepare for how they will react to tornadoes, flash flooding and other severe weather. Each day of the week has a different theme.

Please note that Missouri’s 40th annual Statewide Tornado Drill has been moved to Thursday, March 6 at 1:30 p.m. At that time, outdoor warning sirens and weather alert radios will sound, indicating that Missourians should seek shelter during this statewide drill. The safest shelter location is the basement or an interior room in the lowest level of a building. The drill is complete once everyone is accounted for in the designated shelters.
