Severe weather awareness.
This is the American Midwest. A great place to live, not doubt about it. And known for variety of weather in addition to many other things.
Severe weather. In March the first thought is thunderstorms and tornados. Yes, we could still have snow, ice and winter storm. But the odds are changing along with the temperature.
Each month now they will test the warning system. Most of the old sirens have been replaced with new, more modern models that can also double as public address. (Although, when they tested that feature last fall I couldn’t understand a word from my patio.)
Let’s hope that all the use the system sees this year are scheduled tests.
