THESE ALERTS SCARE THE NOODLE OUT OF ME! Those screeching noises, the T.V. suddenly cuts its programming, but worst of all, the eerie VOICE. The voices and noises from an eas plays in my nightmares. - Catacorn

If you want EAN'S everywhere, switch to AT&T U-Verse. They test it once a month.

2 Tornado Warning Tornado Warning

Here's a story: When I was born, surrounding counties were getting sirens and there was THIS huge tornado outbreak. Mom got me out of the hospital, and the rain was POUNDING. It kept on raining, and there was thunder. And the county below us actually got a tornado, injuring 1 person with 0 fatalities.

A lot of counties near mine have tornadoes. - Catacorn
