Georgia schools prepare for tornado warning


Students all across the state practiced how to react to a tornado warning Friday morning.

A statewide tornado drill was held at Georgia schools at nine o'clock this morning.  It was postponed Wednesday because of rain. 

The state won't hold a drill if the weather really does appear threatening.  Friday, these students at Lee County High School got on their hands and knees and protected their heads.  Administrators are pleased with how the drill went.

"They responded very well today and we had a great drill everything went off very well. I think the students will be prepared in the event of an unfortunate situation, they will be prepared for it," said Kevin Taylor Asst. Principal of LCHS.

Lee County High School took advantage of the high alert day and included a fire drill as well.
