Severe Weather Preparedness Week: March 15-21, 2009

Governor Mitch Daniels has proclaimed March 15 through 21, 2009 as Severe Weather Preparedness Week in Indiana.

The National Weather Service, in conjunction with the Indiana State Police, the Indiana Department of Homeland Security, the Indiana Department of Education, the Indiana Broadcasters Association, the American Red Cross, and Amateur Radio Operators will conduct a statewide test of communication systems on Wednesday, March 18 between 10:00 AM and 10:30 AM EDT and between 7:00 PM and 7:30 PM EDT.
