Look to the skies tomorrow night overnight especially if you live in the area.

This stormgasm was actually building LAST week. I saw some news station posting that the conditions for a storm next week will be perfect, and had a diagram showing from Dallas to KC as a danger zone. Oh yeah, that's the stuff!

I heard the phrases "Historic danger levels" and "Epic storms" this morning.

5:22PM. I heard rain outside the bunker earlier. Used the opportunity to soak up some rain water to buttress our supplies. Food stocks were somewhat depleted from lunch, ate one of the dogs. Let me know when this is all over.

We generally prefer they do that when there is a tornado warning.

You realize the sirens sound when  when a Tornado is actually forming and or on the ground right which there wasn't....Or are you to busy spamming the board about cops.....

Actually, there were several tornadoes forming and perhaps one on the ground out by Bixby.

Counties are now broken up into zones. If a tornado warning is issued for a portion of that zone the sirens will be sounded. Warning means a tornado has been indicated by radar or actually spotted. As we saw last night, many times radar indicates there "may" be a tornado and a warning is issued. Whether there was a tornado or not in such circumstances is not determined for a couple of days as damage is assessed (obviously larger tornadoes are easier to confirm).

Not true.  Tornado sirens are sounded in concert with the NWS and the city emergency management agency.  They will warn for a radar indicated tornado.

And anyone using *outdoor* sirens as their primary means of warning of bad weather deserve to be Darwined.  Get a weather radio people.
