    good morning,

    Wow! That was some wild weather we had today!
    How come we had no warnings of the severe weather heading our way?

    Don’t we have a tornado siren warning or hurricane warning of some kind for a heads up to the danger ?

    I mean if you don’t see it on your radar screens until its right on us how are we supposed to protect ourselves

    Don’t get me wrong you all do a great job! I would just like to know why

      Some communities do not have sirens. Remember sirens are designed to be heard if you are outside, not inside. We had the warnings scrolling along the bottom of our channel as always.
