Consider This...Still no tornado sirens

Sad to see another severe weather season is upon us and Mother Nature has already taken a toll on our friends in the southeast.

Also sad to see Lubbock, Texas still doesn't have the most reliable early warning system available: tornado sirens.

You'll recall the mayor and council have appointed a task force to research and present options to make Lubbock safer from tornados, but still no decision.

Consider this:

The deadly storms in our southern states last month have proven once again that sirens save lives.

We also know that sirens are on the list of recommendations to council, so it's time to take action.

Let's not roll the dice another severe weather season by doing nothing to raise sirens. Let's give residents and taxpayers the protection they pay for and deserve.
