Tornado Sirens

Recommended Posts

After living in Charlotte for almost 5 years now, I look around and notice there are not many tornado sirens here. Yeah we don't see tornadoes like the midwest does, but they do hit. As spring moves closer the threat for sever weather increases. There could be some bad weather this weekened. Tornado sirens are very effective and I wonder why there are not that many??

FYI, they just installed such a warning siren for various stuff like tornadoes on campus here at UNC Charlotte, and they recently did a test of it, but I never heard it, I was inside at the time, but it is said to be able to be heard for miles from campus.

There is an extensive siren system at Lake Norman to warn of troubles at the nuclear plant. Duke pays to maintain and operate it and they test it 4 times/year. I don't think they would use it for tornados though.
