FLORENCE, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Across the state, people are learning how to survive in the event of severe weather. 

On Wednesday morning, students at Steen's Creek Elementary School in Florence recognized Severe Weather Preparedness Week. They gathered out in the hallway and huddled in place, as part of the statewide tornado drill. 

The school's principal, Catie Gunn, says the knowledge the students gain will stretch beyond the classroom. 

"I do think that some of these skills are helpful for them even at home," she says.

Schools, businesses and other agencies were encouraged to participate in the drill to help everyone learn lifesaving rules.
