(KSNT)  Schools, businesses and people across the state of Kansas were encouraged to run tornado drills Tuesday in preparation for tornado season.

It's an annual drill that shows people what to do when a tornado warning is issued.

Tuesday's drill gave students and teachers a chance to learn where the safest spots are in their buildings.

Kansas had 56 tornadoes in 2013, including 15 in one day according to the National Weather Service; 45 of those 56 hit in May.
