This is Severe Weather Awareness Week, and this year there is a new way for the National Weather Service to broadcast tornado warnings in Hennepin and Ramsey Counties.
Storms packing high winds and windshield-shattering hail have rumbled across central Minnesota, but no serious damage or injuries are reported.
During Severe Weather Awareness Week, Minnesota counties and cities tested all of their tornado sirens. But who decides when the sirens should be sounded? And who pushes the button?
Forecasters who issued dire warnings ahead of last weekend’s tornado outbreak in the Midwest deemed the effort a success Monday, largely because dozens of tornadoes hit yet caused only a handful of deaths. But they expressed concern about future public complacency.
