Tornado Drills In Minnesota And Wisconsin Thursday
Sarasota and Manatee counties are under a tornado watch until 6 p.m., the National Weather Service announced this afternoon. Interstate 8 through the East County mountains will also be impacted.

Wind gusts were expected to be around 40 miles per hour late Sunday night into early Monday morning and then diminish throughout the day, he said.
As a result, the NWS said, "new fires may be hard or impossible to control due to fast rates of spread".
Fire and rescue officials reported several trees down in the Palm Lake area of Slidell on West Hall Avenue and Front Street at 11:15 a.m., the result of thunderstorm winds.
The Williamsburg County watch remains in effect until 11 p.m. Thursday, schools, businesses, and families took part in a statewide tornado drill. Many radio and TV stations across the state will issue the test tornado warnings. If severe storms are possible Friday, the drills will be canceled. Moderate to heavy rain with potentially a passing thunderstorm was predicted for the Monday morning drive.
According to the Storm Prediction Center, Raleigh and surrounding areas remain at a moderate level 3 risk (out of a scale of 5) for severe weather this evening.
Aside from wind and tornado damage, meteorologists are also watching for large rain and flooding issues, Owen said.
