Re: WEATHER!! Now tornados

I guess I'm really provincial here.  I don't think of sirens as connected 
with tornadoes at all. They are "fire whistles" if they only sound for a few 
cycles, but if they go on for more than a couple of minutes we turn on the radio 
to be sure it's not an alert of some sort of disaster. There is an extensive 
siren warning system originally intended to warn us of nuclear attack.  It is 
regularly tested, since there is still a lot of uneasiness about the Indian 
Point atomic energy plant a few miles from here. From my house I can hear these 
warning sirens in three directions.
