Default Tornado Sirens in Ontario

I never realized we had sirens until a friend told me she heard them going in Sarnia.

I always thought St Kitts had some (the school at Geneva and Linwell had a giant siren years ago, dont know if it is still there), but someone told me they were from the cold war days.

Are there many communities with the sirens?

Yep, Lambton County has a vast network of sirens. I caught them on video during the May 29, 2011 storms when they were set off for a false tornado report from Emergency Management Ontario.

St. Kitts had war sirens in the North End at Parnell School two actually and I believe one is at another school. They removed the two in the North End, but I can't recall if the the other one was removed yet. Personally, I was at work just before St. Kitt's was Tornado Warned. And honestly, we listen to the AWFUL CD, so if there was a Tornado coming through or in our direction while open we'd have no idea.
