Greenville, S.C (WSPA) – Students across the state took part in a drill designed to keep them safe during a tornado.
Children were taken out of their classrooms away from windows and taught to shelter in the hallways. They covered their heads with their arms and hands assuming the “duck and cover” position to shield them from potential debris.
The drill was part of “Severe Weather Awareness Week.” this is all part of severe weather awareness week.
“I’m glad we had the opportunity today to practice the tornado drill with the kids to remind them how important that is,” said Dawn Hooker, principal of East North Academy

Some schools were unable to take part in the drill because of ACT testing, but we’re told those drills were scheduled for a later date.
