DARIEN, Ill. (CBS) — In case you’re wondering, after seeing the devastation in Oklahoma this week, Illinois schools are required by the State Board of Education to conduct severe weather drills once a year.
WBBM Newsradio’s Bernie Tafoya visited Darien School District 61 in the southwest suburbs, where Supt. Bob Carlo said his schools are safe, but he pointed out, “You can only plan so much.”
Carlo said he’s sure everything possible was done in the schools in Moore, Okla., but the “destruction was so massive.”
