(UNDATED) - Indiana Severe Weather Preparedness Week is this week and will including two state-wide test of the emergency siren today at 10:15 a.m. and this evening at 7:35 p.m.

In case of unsettled or severe weather today the test will be rescheduled for Wednesday.

During these tests, radio and television stations will take part. Severe weather radios will receive a tornado warning test and outdoor warning sirens will be activated.

During stormy weather, residents are urged to remain alert and stay tune to their local television, radio stations and weather radios for the most up to date weather information and be prepared to move quickly to a designated "safe area," should conditions develop and the emergency siren is activated.

Residents should also be mindful of the fact that emergency sirens are designed mainly for "outdoor" warning use and may not always be heard indoors.

Again local radio, television and weather radios are the primary sources of severe weather related information.
