In the Midwest, weather can be very unpredictable and change in a matter of minutes. This year, March 7-11, is designated as Missouri Severe Weather Preparedness Week. With spring right around the corner, it's important to be weather aware and have a plan in place. On Tuesday, March 8, a statewide tornado drill will take place at 10am, and residents are encouraged to treat the drill as if it were an actual tornado warning.
