How Prepared? Oklahoma City has 182 tornado warning sirens

Tornado and severe weather preparedness
CITY OF OKLAHOMA CITY

Oklahoma City has 182 tornado warning sirens located across Oklahoma, Canadian and Cleveland counties. The sirens are activated in each county for which the National Weather Service has issued a tornado warning.

The sirens are reactivated each time the National Weather Service issues a new tornado warning, so they may sound more than once. No “all clear” signal is given when the threat has passed.

The siren is your cue to turn on your television, radio or all-hazards alert weather radio to get information about the storm’s location and proper protective actions. Citizens are encouraged to monitor weather conditions until the threat has passed.

Oklahoma City has no designated public storm shelters.
