Oklahoma schools to have at least two tornado drills yearly

Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Oklahoma's 540 school districts must have at least two tornado drills each year under new rules adopted by the state Board of Education.

Previous rules required only fire drills and that a tornado plan be in place, but no tornado drill.

State schools Superintendent Sandy Garrett says most schools in the state have at least one tornado drill each year, but the board wants to make sure every school has the drills.

School administrators say they'll have no problem adapting to the new rule.
