Can you hear the tornado sirens?

Today there will be a test of tornado sirens at 9:50am. Depending on what you are doing and where you are located you may or may not hear them­.

While these sirens are helpful, you may want to consider a backup such as a weather radio or one of several smart phone “apps”. These devices monitor continuous 24-hour weather and bulletin broadcasts from the National Weather Service channel and public alerts. 

One such app is  called Storm Shield and the information can be found here.    

Stay safe

Since more people have Android phones than Apple, it'd be helpful to link that one too...https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.wdtinc.android.stormshield
