With more than half the state under a disaster declaration due to flooding, many Iowans don’t need a reminder about how wicked Mother Nature can be.

Still, residents who could use a refresher course on the dangers of springtime in Iowa should take note this is Severe Weather Awareness Week.

Meteorologist Brooke Hagenhoff, at the National Weather Service, says a different topic is covered daily.

Last year, 69 tornadoes touched down in Iowa, with one day standing apart.

As part of this week’s educational events, Hagenhoff says a statewide tornado drill is set for Wednesday morning.
