Weather warning signals are sounded when severe damaging winds or a tornado has been spotted within five miles of our community or if the community is in the direct path of a spotted tornado as issued by the National Weather Service.
A Weather Warning Alert signal is a 3 to 5 minute steady siren and is activated in the event a tornado or severe damaging winds are reported. This reporting includes a five-mile perimeter.
All Clear Signal
In keeping with the policy of the National Weather Service, the issuance of an All Clear Signal statement SHOULD NOT be issued by local government.
The Attack Warning signal means that an actual attack or detected missile launch against the United States has been detected and that protective action should be taken immediately.
An attack warning is a three (3) to five (5) minute wavering siren tone.
