Not only did the Newark siren-button-pushers go ape, Columbus TV weather saviors about wet themselves in self-important horror-casts regarding impending doom for a state under attack from ...

... from a rain storm! Yes. It actually rained in Newark. But we were saved by the sirens and really scary meteorologists.

Would you be praising them?

So what if a tornado touched down in Licking County?

Would be praising them. If they did nothing and one touched down you seem like you would be griping about them not covering a thing.

The storm somewhat weakened before it hit Licking County.

I think you need to re-read what I wrote. Tornadoes cannot be predicted. Period. All this noise is merely a show by government and media. And the hysteria associated with the recent heavy band of rain that passed over Licking County is a perfect example of government and media at their worst.

The meterologist who stands outside in the rain, reporting on puddles and faraway lightening in the sky is doing his/her level best to make a story from nothing. You gotta give them credit for trying to scare you.

Sorry, but the NWS issuing a tornado warning has nothing to do with local media personally wetting themselves. Warnings are issued when a storm's mesocyclone is visible on doppler radar - this means the storm is capable of producing a tornado.

You can choose to ignore the warning sirens if you wish. Turn off. Tune out. No one cares what you do.

The fact is tornado warnings have saved thousands of lives as evidenced by the decreasing death tolls over the last century. It is also a fact that storm system did produce a significant tornado earlier.

As for the local media, well, what do you expect from a bunch of blow-dried former cheerleaders? They're fools catering to bigger fools. Ignore them.

Nobody can predict when a tornado will touch down, how long it will stay down, or where it will go - NWS included - so these sirens are a waste and a nuisance that can't be tuned out or ignored. They are used by government to call attention to its power and presence, the same reason media use weather to scare citizens.

Your impudent attitude in conjunction with your lack of reading-comprehension skills prove to my satisfaction that if you aren't already a government employee you at least have all the qualifications.

I give you the last word in this exchange, should you choose to further embarrass yourself.
