The annual Illinois Severe Weather drill takes place Tuesday.
At 10 a.m., tornado warning sirens will sound throughout the state. Greenville will participate.
Each year as spring arrives, the National Weather Service issues a test tornado warning. It is a solid three-minute siren blast.
Alan Davis, Bond County Emergency Services director, told WGEL the drill is conducted on the first Tuesday of March every year. March is National Severe Weather Preparedness Month.
