From Dane Co. Emergency Management:
When a watch is issued – this is the time for individuals to figure out what they are going to do if conditions develop into a warning or worse. Several simple questions individuals should be asking themselves include:
-Where will I go to seek shelter ? - This is a big one for people on the road. There is really no safe place when you are outside. You can’t outrun severe weather. The safe thing to do is get inside.
-While at work – Can I quickly walk away from my work / computer ?
-How will I contact my other family members ? What will I do if I can’t reach them ?
-Did I receive any of the warning information issued ? – Individuals should visit Dane County’s Warning web page (https://www.countyofdane.com/emergency/warning.aspx) to identify different methods they can use to “get warned.”

The statewide tornado drill is a “go” for this afternoon.
At 1:00 p.m., the National Weather Service will issue a mock tornado watch for all of Wisconsin.
At 1:45, the NWS will issue a mock tornado warning. It will end at 2:00.
Most local and state radio and TV stations (including NBC15) will take part in the drill. Viewers will hear a message at 1:45 indicating that “this is a test.”
The mock watch and warning will be issued over NOAA weather radios. If your weather radio does not go off for this test, check its programming and reception.
