Show-Me Opinions Post On Storm Sirens

Newsy, over at Show-Me Opinions is a weather weenie, and occasionally ventures into my sacred weather blogging territory. I'm going to let that slide for now, since I do find the posts interesting. :)

Here's a good write up on storm sirens and the ignorance of some people.

I will take this opportunity to mention that storm sirens in most areas sound for 3 minutes, then shut off for 3, and continue in a cycle during the warning. A siren shutting off does not mean it's all clear, and a siren sounding a second time does not mean it's all clear. Here's a previous post in more detail.

Thanks for the info, I didn't realize that they do 3 minute cycles.
