Maryland officials are holding a statewide tornado drill Wednesday morning at 9:45.
The National Weather Service and Maryland Emergency Management Agency encourage schools, businesses and families to participate by discussing and practicing tornado emergency plans.
When seeking shelter in the event of a tornado, they recommend going to the lowest, most interior room of a sturdy building. “Put as much ‘structure’ as possible between you and the outside,” they say.
