We need more sirens here in Lafayette, as well as in the rest of the county. At my house, if the tv in the living room is on, you will not hear the sirens going off. Odd, considering there is a siren not even 3 blocks away. I have been in my basement office at times, and could barely hear it. 71 in the entire county? They might as well have a guy standing on the courthouse with a bullhorn.

One of the people in the in the story said that sometimes the sirens go off after a storm as blown through. What the person doesn't understand that just because the weather is not bad in his neighborhood does not mean that something is not happening in another part of the county that he can't see.

Emergency Management works hard at protecting everyone from severe weather and other disasters that happen. I think a job well done goes to Director Kirby and all those TEMA.
