Fort Leavenworth to practice storm response

FORT LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) -- Weather permitting, Army units and civilian employees at Fort Leavenworth will test their responses this week to a simulated tornado hitting the northeast Kansas post.

The two-day exercise starts Tuesday with the sounding of a tornado siren in the morning, as long as there isn't inclement weather in the area.

First responders and other crews will report in shifts Tuesday and Wednesday to various locations at Fort Leavenworth.
