Homeland Security to conduct siren warning tests

– The Indiana Division of Homeland Security will conduct siren tests as part of a statewide tornado drill.

Two tests will be initiated Thursday by the National Weather Service as part of Severe Weather Preparedness Week. The purpose of the tests is to allow each county to test warning sirens in a simulated emergency and to provide the opportunity for businesses and schools to test their preparedness.

The first test is scheduled for 10:15 a.m., and the second test will start at 7:35 p.m. The tests will be canceled if there is severe weather.

The weather service says Indiana averages 21 tornadoes a year and had a record 72 tornadoes in 2012. The weather service says tornadoes can occur at any time, but are most likely from April to June.
