When Will Hudson Activate its Tornado Sirens?
If a Tornado WARNING is issued, Hudson will activate the tornado sirens. These sirens are designed as an outdoor warning system and may not always be heard indoors. The City urges residents to have several forms of notifications set up for severe weather so you can monitor the weather on your own.
- FEMA App. The FEMA app allows you to receive alerts straight from the National Weather Service for up to five locations. In addition, you can set up safety reminders; read tips to survive national disasters; customize your emergency checklist; locate open shelters and where to talk to FEMA in person (or on the phone); and upload and share your disaster photos to help first responders.
