The City of Jarrell and Tornado Sirens
Williamson County sits in the most south part of what is known as “Tornado Alley”. This community has suffered through a direct hit from an F5 tornado in 1997, as well as several minor tornadoes and straight-line wind events in recent years.
While Tornados sirens are a good tool, Tornado sirens are intended to be heard by people who are outdoors and within earshot of the siren. Tornado sirens are not designed to alert people who are indoors, people outdoors wearing headphones or ear pods enjoying music or even in windy environments.
