Just a reminder that County Executive William McReynolds has joined with Governor Doyle in proclaiming the week of April 19-23, 2010 as Tornado and Severe Weather Awareness Week.

On Thursday, April 22, 2010, a statewide tornado drill is planned. The mock tornado warnings will be issued by the NWS and will be staggered
from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. The actual times will be posted in March on the Wisconsin Emergency Management website at:

We will also be hosting our annual Tornado Awareness and Spotter Seminars on Monday, April 19, 2010 at Gateway Technical College, Racine
Building-Great Lakes Room (Auditorium) , 901 Pershing Drive, Racine (parking is lakeside).

A BASIC storm spotter and awareness course will be held from 2:00 pm- 4:00 pm and an ADVANCED storm spotter course will be held from 6:00 pm-9:00 pm.
