FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - In a statement released by the National Weather Service Tuesday morning, "The NWS Indiana offices in conjunction with IDHS have decided to cancel the planned test tornado drill on Wednesday, March 18, 2020.
This is due to numerous reasons related to the COVID-19 virus and sheltering actions being taken by the public.
We do not want to add an extra layer of anxiety to the ongoing situation.
While we feel it is important to test our communications and safety action plans, we feel it more prudent right now to focus on the active societal response to the virus.
We apologize for this inconvenience but hope you understand."
There are no plans for a makeup date at this time.
