The Virginia Department of Emergency Management invites the public to join in a state-wide tornado drill at 9:45 a.m. March 12.
The sign-up form for the drill is located here.
According to VDEM, there is no such thing as a tornado "season": They can hit anywhere and any time. In the event of a tornado, people should reach the lowest point in a building and crouch as low to the ground as possible until the storm subsides.
