It's Severe Weather and Tornado Awareness Week. The event is all about testing emergency plans for severe weather and tornadoes. Schools, families, and businesses will be busy preparing.
"It's always good to be prepared; it really can be quite simple. Battery powered radio, bandages, first aid type of stuff. Anything you might need in the aftermath of something occurring," said Sean Miller, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

Miller says it's better to be safe than sorry, and it doesn't take long to come up with a plant at all.
