    Yes. I work in the Cameron Village area, and I even heard the sirens here on Oberlin Road. Of course at the time, I didn't know why I was hearing sirens, but now it makes sense.

    I wish Raleigh also had some tornado warning sirens. That's one thing I miss from having grown up in the Midwest.
