Kentucky Tornado Drill

Thanks to everyone (14 of you) who checked in for the Commonwealth of Kentucky tornado drill today!
This was an unusual net in that, since we were on the air anyway, the Weather Service Office in Wilmington was looking for "severe winter weather" reports.
This normally includes "falling" ice, as well as damage due to snow accumulation, or particularly heavy snow accumulation in a short time (ie what happened overnight throughout most of the tri-state.)
Wilmington appreciated those reports. WARN would like to remind you that although it is unusual for us to hold a net to collect winter weather reports, the Weather Service will take those reports via phone call to their "Spotter Hotline."
Again, thanks to all for your help...certainly a "different" tornado drill than we're used to!
