Although the severe weather season has started a bit early, all week the National Weather Service is making sure you are ready the next time severe weather threatens.

Shawnee County Emergency Management Director Dusty Nichols says the Storm Talk has been cancelled due to the potential threat for severe weather in the area. The tornado watch is through 10 p.m. The drill will test everyone's readiness for a life threatening severe weather event, such as a tornado.

Tuesday features a statewide tornado drill that goes beyond the normal monthly testing of warning sirens. During the drill schools, homes, and businesses are encouraged to practice their plans of action.
