Students At Destroyed School Take Part In Tornado Drill

Students at a school that was destroyed by last April's tornadoes hunkered down in their temporary classrooms today.

It was all part of the statewide tornado drill for Severe Weather Awareness Week in North Carolina.

Greene County Middle School was destroyed in the April 16th storms that devastated parts of Eastern Carolina. Students at the school are in temporary classrooms while their school is being rebuilt.

East Carolina University will be testing their outdoor notification speakers and sending out "this is a test" messages through the phone and email systems.

The governor's office says March, May and November are the deadliest months for tornadoes in the state. However, people should be equally prepared for other forms of severe weather, such as lightning, floods or hail.
