COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - We know a howling siren means one of two things: there’s severe weather or it’s 12 p.m. on a Saturday. However, a statewide tornado drill will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 3.

The outdoor sirens will sound at 9 a.m. on Wednesday. As we approach severe weather season, this will give schools and businesses a chance to go through severe weather safety plans.

The siren will sound during Severe Weather Preparedness Week, which takes place Feb. 1 through Feb. 5 in Georgia.
