Why can't I hear a siren inside my home?

The Outdoor Warning Sirens are for outdoor warning only. They are meant to let people outside know to go inside and gather additional information. Current construction requirements for buildings and homes make hearing the Outdoor Warning Sirens difficult indoors. If there is inclement weather in your area, tune in to your local news, weather or radio channels to monitor the potential weather threats.
