LEAGUE CITY, Tex. (KBTX) - As a part of Severe Weather Awareness Week, the National Weather Service will issue a mock tornado warning Wednesday morning.

Wednesday, March 7th, 2018 the Houston / Galveston National Weather Service office will issue this mock warning at 10am over NOAA Weather Radio and through their official Twitter account: @NWSHouston. The all clear will be given at 10:15am through the same channels.

This is an effort to encourage families, schools, and local business to refresh, practice, or put in place a severe weather plan for the upcoming spring storm season. If you don't have a severe weather plan, now is the time to make one. For tornadoes, its important to identify where the safest area would be in your school, home or business and how to safely move people to those safer areas. It is also important to practice these procedures.
