MONROE - Monroe will have two tornado drills this year instead of one, an effort to provide more practice for families preparing for the real event. The drills are planned for April 14 and are part of Tornado and Severe Weather Awareness week. Monroe Fire Chief Daryl Rausch said the city will go into a tornado watch situation, then escalate to a simulated warning before setting off sirens throughout the city.
