Tornado Siren Sounding Policy

Policy for Sounding Tornado Sirens
Storm sirens will be sounded in Coffeyville if southern Montgomery County is placed under a tornado warning. A tornado warning means the weather service radar is showing rotation in the atmosphere. Additionally, the sirens will be sounded if a tornado is actually confirmed by a trained weather spotter.

Please note: An all-clear siren is not sounded. This alleviates the confusion for citizens wondering if it is another warning or an all-clear signal.
