With the possibility of additional severe weather overnight and into Wednesday, the Arkansas state tornado drill has been rescheduled for Thursday morning, March 2nd at 10 am.
Severe Weather Awareness Week runs from February 26th through March 4th in Arkansas. Today's topic is tornadoes. In an average year, 33 tornadoes are spawned across the state. Most of these are weak. In fact, from 2000 to 2016, 554 of 669 tornadoes (83%) were rated EF0/EF1 (weak). The strongest tornadoes were rated EF4, and there were three of them. This includes the monster tornado that killed 16 people as it tore through Pulaski, Faulkner, and White Counties on April 27, 2014. To hide from a tornado, go to a building on a permanent foundation. Find a place on the lowest floor in an interior room away from windows. Put as many walls between you and the outdoors as you can.
Our next Skywarn spotter training class is scheduled for Wednesday March 1st, at 6:00 pm in Arkadelphia, AR (Clark County). The class is free and open to the public.
