Here in SW ohio (Montgomery Co) we usually will get a weather alert toned out before it gets TV or radio time and depending on how bad we may get posted at the stations at night if its bad enough out.
Sorry man. We are close to the Ohio line and we usually get told when it's right on top of us.
We usually watch tv and my cousin Dale a Firefighter for the SCVFD Sugar City Volunteer Fire Department well he is the Capitan we go out and watch the weather and he hands me his radio to radio in if we need to send out a page for tornados or something...
Here in KS we do storm spotting. We had our state wide tornado drill today. Went well I might add.
Yeah I was trying to think of the name thats what it is called Storm Spotting.. We do that here in Crowley County
Speaking of severe weather, when you get a tornado warning, does your siren go off immediately or do they wait and sound the alarm once something is spotted. I have heard many variations of this. I am so excited for the upcoming weater season because its chase time. I have a bad feeling about this years season here in the plains.
They sound our sirens in the county depending on where the tornado is forcast to hit. Usually 2 or 3 towns at a time.
We wait.. till the aftermath as well so its basically the same for all Departments that have the Tornadoes and Really bad storms then...
it goes immediately at first to warn but then it when a funnel or a tornado is spotted it goes off agian. and it is the whole county goes off . even if the storm has already past us so the residents think that there is more on the way .
where at on the line are you at
Deleware County. About an hr. away
We go on standby and wait for the aftermath, we also have a weather siren at our station we can sound if we need to.
