The Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS) is encouraging Hoosiers to plan ahead for weather events as part of Severe Weather Preparedness Week, March 18-24. Planning and preparation can minimize weather-related deaths, injuries and property damage. IDHS encourages Hoosiers to build a preparedness kit, identify shelter and practice emergency plans during this year’s preparedness week. As part of Severe Weather Preparedness Week, there will be a statewide tornado drill at 10:15 EDT local time, Tuesday, March 20. This drill provides a valuable opportunity for families, schools and businesses to practice severe weather emergency plans.
