I have had issues with not getting a tornado warning from my car radio or older phone and in New York there are no tornado sirens. In North Carolina I had bought a weather radio in loo of the previous incident and it took 7 minutes after the warning was supposedly issued. I did have a cell phone but my service was spotty in the area and it took 5 minutes (although I had called to report the tornado and it went through after 2 minutes. There should be tornado sirens in the area since N.C. is very tornado prone at times.
