It would be good to have tornado warning sirens, as many communities in the Nation do (but not us). In the event of an actual tornado, it is very probable that electric power would be out, so what is the use of announcements on TV?

That's why people need to buy a NOAA Weather Radio for their home, that way they can get tornado warning information even if they don't have power.

Either way, outdoor warning sirens are horribly ineffective at reaching people inside a building, whether it be a home, office, church, or school. Even their outdoor range is very limited.... so I don't see them as being that useful.
