Re: WEATHER!! Now tornados

Here is small town Iowa, one has to learn to decipher the siren
codes...one for fires that our volunteer fire department will respond
to, one for other fires in the county that they may be called to so
should be on alert for, one for first responders, and one for
tornados/natural disasters. Of course, there is no place in town that
you can't hear them. Even the young kids learn to decipher the sirens at
a fairly early age.

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