South Dakota holds statewide tornado drill

Wednesday morning, just after 9:15, students across the state huddled together in hallways during a tornado drill.

All broadcast outlets relayed a test message, and schools held safety drills.

At Corral Drive Elementary in Rapid City, alarms rung inside the school signaling everyone to move into the halls for safety. Teachers then directed the students to kneel with their hands protecting their heads.

The school holds drills like this every year in an effort to make sure everyone knows what to do in an emergency.Wyoming will have its statewide tornado drill on Friday around 10:30 a.m.
