Tornado Warning

The City of New London does have Tornado / Severe Weather Sirens.  Our siren system is operated at the New London Police Department and also through the Outagamie County Emergency Management.  The sirens are mainly for warning citizens outside of buildings.  The City’s tornado sirens are tested each Saturday at noon.  If you hear this, except of course during the weekly test, take shelter.  Under exceptional circumstances, the sirens may be activated when the extreme weather conditions may produce tornados even though the National Weather Service has not issued a Tornado Warning.

The City of New London recommends that each household and business obtain a NOAA weather radio which will automatically activate and warn citizens of hazardous weather conditions.
