Emergency Managers complete mock tornado exercise

Lawton, Okla._Storms, hail and tornadoes swirled across the area Wednesday, but as far as we know, no one lost their life and we can credit a lot of people for that, including the national weather service, meteorologists, storm spotters and emergency workers.

Dozens of emergency officials from all over Southwest Oklahoma were at the Great Plains Coliseum Annex building Thursday.

They gathered there for a scheduled mock exercise to come up with a coordinated plan of action in the case of a tornado. They worked to make the training seem as realistic as possible and even enlisted 7 News reporter Jonathan Rozelle to help with the exercise.
