We are working to keep you weather aware. The City funded improvements to the Outdoor Warning Siren system. We are installing a new Outdoor Warning Siren on FM 2499 at the City’s Southwood well lot location. This new siren will provide enhanced severe weather warning for residents in the Casltewood, Rolling Hills, western Highland Shores, and Ladera subdivisions. The contractor is currently installing the siren and will need to test the siren to ensure it is working properly. We will notify residents of the testing times ahead of time through our CivicReady notification system, Nextdoor, and social media.
It is important to remember the Outdoor Warning Siren is designed to alert people who are outside to seek shelter indoors as severe weather approaches. The City tests the Outdoor Warning Sirens the first Wednesday of every month at 1:00 p.m. unless inclement weather is in the forecast.
