Tornado Siren

The siren will sound continuously for 3 minutes for a tornado warning. It does not sound for a tornado watch nor does it sound an all clear after the dangerous weather has passed. The county tests all of the tornado sirens on the first Saturday of each month at 1pm for a shortinterval.

Tornado watch means weather conditions are right for a tornado to form in your area.
Tornado warning means a tornado has been sighted and is moving in your direction; take cover in a protected area immediately.
