I found this story on Tupelo adding a 16th tornado siren a little unsettling. I personally believe sirens should be the very last alternative when figuring out the weather situation. This article makes it seem like these citizens would have no way to know if a tornado was coming if the sirens didn't sound. That's a very dangerous, false, and outdated message to convey when we have television, internet, and social media that are 100x more reliable than a siren. While adding the siren to extend coverage makes sense, I feel like someone should have mentioned how ignorant it is to rely only on sirens somewhere in that story.
