Severe Weather Warning Sirens
The City of Council Bluffs has an outdoor warning siren network consisting of 20 weather warning sirens strategically placed throughout the city. The warning sirens are used to alert residents and visitors to severe weather events including tornadoes, high winds in excess of 60 miles an hour, floods, or other severe and damaging weather events.
The warning sirens are intended as a severe weather warning system for people who are outdoors. However, not everyone will live close enough to hear the warning siren and thus we encourage all residents, businesses, and industries to have a severe weather plan, including a weather radio.
