I'm fighting all these evil forces attacking America. I have nothing to do with all bad happening in America. Thank you for your blind devotion!

Serious question ... Did anyone in New Lenox hear any warning sirens prior to or during the tornado in the area? We live at the south end of this lovely little hamlet and did not hear any sirens. I also thought Will County had a telephone robo-call system that was to be in place to warn of severe weather amongst other emergencies. Curious if others heard sirens and if so, a general vicinity. Thanks!

The sirens went off. Sometime around 1245pm. I live in the Rachael Ridge subdivision off Laraway Rd. Near the Berkots store.

Sirens are probably your very last line of defense and can sometimes come too late. If you have a smartphone, set it up to receive weather alerts. If you were watching the Bears game, you had all the info you needed to know right there. Ed Curran was talking for hours on end about what was coming, where, and what to do.

We're off Laraway and Nelson as well and even though we were listening for the siren, we didn't hear it. Even on a clear day when they run the tests, we barely hear it.
