Here is a 10 second long video I took when the siren went off in Tulsa a few weeks ago. You can hear how loud it is in certain places. I'll make a longer video next time it goes off.

This two-tone siren sound at the start of this video is the one that sends me chills.


I'd assume it's a recording of a British Carter siren, or some other similar 10/12 port one.

It's all fun & games until someone summons Cthulhu and brings about the end of the world.

I also collect traffic lights, road signs, fans, and railroad crossing equipment.

Here is one that went off around Nashville yesterday as the storm wiped out an electrical substation causing an explosion lighting up the sky.

The tornado sirens I grew up with were pitched up from that at least a full octave but were extremely similar.

I think Calvin Harris wrote the notes for this siren. Don't hate it.
