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.
