Dixon, MO Weather Service
Tornado Drill PDF Print E-mail

On March 3, 2015 at 1:30 PM the Missouri tornado drill was conducted by the National Weather Service and MO SEMA.

Dixon Weather Service Inc. staff member's Wendy Lefty Krull, Tim Brandt, Nick Musson monitored and documented the response of the city of Dixon, Missouri to the statewide tornado drill.

The test tornado warning was issued by the NWS at Approx 1:30 PM on 3-3-2015. The outside warning system installed at our station worked just fine when NWS issued the test tornado warning. Wendy Krull was on site at Country Mart on the Northeast side of Dixon monitoring the tornado drill to see if the siren could adequately be heard on that side of town. After 5 minutes had past without hearing the siren she returned to our station.

Dixon did sound the siren for the tornado drill. However, It was 10 minutes after the test tornado warning was issued before the siren was sounded.

If the event had been an actual tornado instead of a drill the entire town could have been impacted in the 10 minutes time that past between the issuance of the test tornado warning and the activation of the siren.

The Dixon Weather Service staff find this unacceptable! In the event of an actual tornado lives could have been lost! When every second count's there is no time for delayed warning.
