It seemed kind of not right that when we had a severe thunder storm warning and tornado warning yesterday, that none of the local TV stations had any thing about them. Are we not worthy of getting much needed updates of life threatening weather?

I noticed the same thing. Didn't realize we were under an actual tornado warning until I saw the advisory saying it had been canceled and downgraded to a severe thunderstorm watch -- and that was on the Weather Channel!

There was absolutely not EAS warnings anywhere on TV; had it on all afternoon to try to keep up-to-speed and there was nothing.

I usually just stay tuned to NOAA via the internet.

Didn't Miles City use to have a siren that went off to warn people not by the tv or internet that bad things could happen?

TWC did have the warnings, but what about the people who just can get the local stations? I hope it gets better, meaning the notification to ALL in dire weather situations.

If you use a smartphone, the Weatherbug app is very reliable at flashing alerts from NOAA.

I'm in NM and knew you had a tornado warning.

I was having supper at the Eagles, and daughter of the lady next to me called from Oregon and asked her about the tornado. She had seen the photos and reports on the news.
