EAS testThe Indiana Broadcasters Association (IBA) in cooperation with the National Weather Service (NWS) is conducting a test of the state Emergency Alert System (EAS) Tuesday, March 16 at 10:15AM EDT that will include a Live Tornado Warning alert.

The alert will occur during a 15-minute window and is done to ensure the system is working properly in the event of an actual tornado.

The test is part of Severe Weather Preparedness Week which runs through Sunday and includes coordinated efforts to work with residents, businesses, and government agencies across Indiana on preparedness activities.

In the event of severe or inclement weather, the test will be rescheduled and held on the morning of Wednesday, March 17th.
