LUBBOCK, TX -- Lubbock’s Tornado Warning System Task Force will meet with the City Council Tuesday evening. The task force has been asked to consider tornado sirens and other warning systems. The initial cost of sirens city-wide has been estimated between $4 million and $12 million.
Currently, Lubbock residents get weather warnings from local TV, radio, weather radio, and Internet sites. The City of Lubbock also has a reverse 911 system that could be used to warn residents. Officials have previously said the task force has no pre-conceived notions and all options will be considered.
The task force was created after tornados killed 23 people in Moore, Oklahoma.
