Monday through Friday is Severe Weather Week in South Dakota; a time for people to check their preparedness and dust off their knowledge of everything from weather warnings to how to survive a tornado’s aftermath.

Throughout the week, the KOTA Territory First Alert meteorology team will have tips and information that can help you survive a spring blast of bad weather.

Another part of the week is a statewide tornado drill Wednesday, April 26. The test watch is scheduled for 9 a.m. MDT; with the warning issued at 9:15 a.m. MDT.

In most communities on Wednesday, severe weather sirens will be sounded. People are reminded that it is only a test unless otherwise announced.

Also, every day our meteorology team will have a severe weather trivia question for you to answer. It doesn’t matter if you get the trivia question correct, everyone who tries gets a daily chance of winning a weather radio from Chris Supply in Rapid City.
