Tornado Safety Tips

Tornado sirens aren't designed to be heard indoors.

I recall many nights being jarred out of bed by a tornado siren's loud blast. But don't count

on a siren to warn you inside your home or wake you at night. Tornado sirens are meant to

warn people outdoors to seek shelter. You may live too far away from the nearest siren to hear it.

It's better to have multiple ways of receiving National Weather Service watches and warnings, including NOAA Weather Radio and an alert from your smartphone. Make sure your smartphone is fully charged and its do not disturb function is turned off at night when severe weather is forecast, so an alert can wake you.
