Tornado Sirens…What’s The Deal?


Alright, I’ve heard a lot of stuff going on about tornado sirens and the seemingly large lack of support for them here in the Hub. So what’s the deal here people? Let’s discuss.

Earlier this week, we saw an EF-5 rip through Moore, Oklahoma with around 15 minutes of advanced warning through television, weather radios, and internet apps/Doppler radar apps. Those citizens in Moore also got warning through sirens. This means those who saw a storm approaching who didn’t have access to the aforementioned utilities listed above had no idea if the storm was tornadic or not. Once they heard these sirens, they were able to find shelter, meaning, more or less, the sirens saved their lives.

I believe we should have the same luxury here, and I think it’s honestly worth the supposed tax raise. Honestly, as a parent, I want my child to have the most protection as possible, especially in a natural disaster.

Look, the deal here is safety. We’ve seen the devastation that happens year in and year out; whether it’s Tuscaloosa, Joplin, Moore, or even here back in 1970 on 19th and University. We’ve seen what tornadoes do, so why not better prepare ourselves for these ominous and obvious disasters?

Being the two year anniversary of the Joplin, Missouri tornado, I felt I should share my opinion; let me know how you feel below…
