A tornado drill is planned March 3. 

The Missouri Statewide Tornado Drill is slated for 10 a.m. Tuesday, the National Weather Service said.

The drill provides schools, businesses and families with an opportunity to test their planning and readiness to be able to quickly seek appropriate shelter in case of a real severe weather emergency.

The National Weather Service said by practicing and increasing readiness across the state, Texas County residents will feel confident and prepared in the event of a severe weather event.

At 10 a.m. on the day of the drill, weather radios will alert listeners that the tornado drill has begun. Sirens will sound. Most communities in the county have storm shelters. In Houston, they are located at First and Pine streets and on the campus of Texas County Memorial Hospital.
