As officials in Nashville provide updates on a deadly tornado that ripped through that city early Tuesday morning, Illinois officials want residents to be ready for the season of potentially dangerous weather.
Several tornadoes ripped through the Nashville area Monday night into Tuesday morning, with the death toll at 24 and possibly rising and hospitalizing dozens more.
Hours later, Illinois’ monthly tornado siren tests went off across the state.
Rebecca Clark with the Illinois Emergency Management Agency says residents need to be ready for the next potentially dangerous storm.
She says this week is Severe Weather Preparedness Week in Illinois.
Clark says to make sure your home has a NOAA weather radio at the ready.
