On Tuesday, students and staff at Indiana University will have the opportunity to try out what they would do if in the path of a tornado. As our peers at IU Kokomo know, the threat is real — a tornado caused considerable damange near the Kokomo campus last summer. While Indiana averages 20 tornadoes annually, it saw 35 last year.
Judging from the feedback we received after Operation Stormy Weather, a lot of people are like me and think outdoor sirens should be heard indoors, too, to alert us to oncoming tornadoes. I’ve got news for you.
