Re: [californiadisasters] If a Tornado Were Headed Toward You, What Would You Do?

Yes. I didn't make any effort to elaborate on this, but the NOAA alert
system cooperates with local public safety to alert the public to
non-weather events. You've mentioned fires, and other need for evacuation;
they also do Amber Alerts (abducted children).

Further, many such radios can be programmed to pass through/alert on only
the areas and the events the user wants (e.g. you don't have to waken to the
siren every time an Amber Alert is broadcast, or even for flash flood
warnings for six counties away).

As you say, "one needs to stay alert for the unexpected".
