Ohio's statewide tornado drill that was set for Wednesday morning has been canceled due to potential severe weather in parts of the state. 

The outdoor warning siren was set to go off at 9:50 a.m. on March 23rd. However, the Storm Prediction Center has upgraded Ohio's outlook to a 'slight' risk of severe weather.

To combat any potential confusion, the Ohio Committee for Severe Weather Awareness (OCSWA) has decided to cancel the drill.

"Ohioans should remember that severe weather can happen any time of the year," said an OCSWA spokesperson. "Remain vigilant by practicing severe weather plans all year long."
