Students at Britton's Neck Elementary participate in the tornado drill.
Schools across the state participated in a state-wide tornado drill Tuesday morning, March 4th, at 9:00 am. A part of severe weather awareness week, the schools responded to a test emergency alert sent out by the National Weather Service. At the sounding of the alert, schools sounded the tornado alarm, and students exited their classrooms to assume a protective posture in the hallways. The drills were conducted efficiently and without incident in all schools across the county.
