In all the bad weather we've had over the last three or four days I've probably run 20 miles back and forth to the NOAA radio listening to the alerts. It kept waking us up a couple of nights. I'm glad it did, too. I like knowing when bad weather is approaching and a NOAA radio is a good way to find out.
Where I live there are no weather sirens and I don't trust them in any case. I don't trust the NOAA 100% either, but so far it's been pretty good.
If a tornado is coming my way when I'm asleep at night I WANT TO KNOW.
They don't have to be expensive. Even Cabela's has one for $25 plus whatever outrageous shipping they charge. Walmart and Radio Shack probably have them for less.
I will never be without one again, if I can help it.
