ABINGDON, Va. -

Virginia schools and businesses participated in a statewide tornado drill at 9:45 a.m. on Tuesday.

The principal at Abingdon Elementary School said severe weather, especially this time of year, makes many people in the school nervous since southwest Virginia was hit by a tornado in April 2011.

Coming up on News 5 WCYB tonight, hear from students and staff about preparing and practicing for tornado after living through one two years ago.
