Technical issues thwart annual statewide tornado drill

Statewide Tornado Drill To Take Place Tuesday Morning

A test of the Emergency Alert System will sound both in the morning and evening on commercial radio, television networks and all-hazard radios.

About a year ago, four people died and more than 45 were injured in a tornado that hit Virginia.

Virginia's yearly tornado drill is slated for Tuesday at 9:45 a.m.

"The National Weather Service will issue a notification that will run on National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, or NOAA, weather radios". The text message is also broadcast by local radio, TV and cable stations. If there is a severe weather threat, the drills will be postponed to March 23.

In the past, 1 million Virginia residents have signed up for tornado drills, officials said.
