Tornado Sirens


Recommended Posts

Hailing from the city of Murfreesboro, I am all too familiar with severe weather. I am a certified storm spotter and have seen the many affects that tornadoes do. Currently the following cities have tornado sirens. Brentwood, Franklin, Nashville, Cookeville, Clarksville, and others. Single handidly seeing so many tornadoes(at least 20) why do so many cities choose not to have them? For a city of it's size, The Boro has one siren, and its the property of MTSU, which you can here in certain parts of town. Sumner County, which felt the brunt of the April 7th blow, is purchasing sirens. Murfreesboro needs many sirens, now being StormReady by the NWS, it is cheaper, and any town can receive a certain amount of federal $ to buy them. Now your opinion, are they worth the cost? We can all take a lesson from Moore, Oklahoma, hit twice in less than 5 years by an F-5(99) and F-4(03) has an incredible alert system, not only of sirens but so much more.
