Vanderbilt to test new tornado siren
3/16/2013, 12:00 pm
Vanderbilt University is upgrading its outdoor tornado siren system and will conduct a one-minute test of the siren at noon on Saturday, March 16. Vanderbilt’s tornado siren, which has been a “wail-type” device, is changing to a steady tone. It’s being updated so that the siren tone differs from those in Metro Nashville, which are changing to the “wail-type” siren.
