If you hear a tornado siren Wednesday, don't panic! It's just a test.

A statewide tornado drill is scheduled for 9:50 a.m. as part of Ohio's severe weather awareness week. 

Ohio communities will test their warning sirens and Emergency Alert System broadcast during the drill. 

State officials recommend households also conduct their own emergency plans during the drill.
