Severe weather awareness week is especially significant for Vermontville's Maple Valley Junior/ Senior High School.
Teachers there say last August -- within a span of about 10 minutes -- a violent blast of wind tore the building's roof off.
Today as part of severe weather awareness week students and faculty held a tornado drill.
The National Weather service offers these suggestions in the event of a tornado;
1) Go to the lowest floor possible in the building you're in.
2) Stay away from windows
3) Remain low if possible.
