Why were there no storm warning sirens?

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

In light of the recent storm and tornado, I listened for the storm warnings to go off.

Once again, I heard the sounds of silence. Somebody please explain to me how that can happen?

I have lived in Neshannock Township for almost five years and have never heard one siren for a severe thunderstorm warning or tornado watch/warning.

I came from a suburb in Cincinnati, where I could drive you and show you where every siren was located in my township. I have not been able to locate one on a school, city or township building yet.

Am I the only citizen of Neshannock or New Castle who is concerned about this? Please tell me I have missed some and what we are doing to get more installed?
