well yes, adding things to the map would be a little hard. I mean, they are pre-orderded I assume, thus they can't just willy nilly change everything with the map. They would have to order all new maps, which may or may not be too expensive, but let's face it...That cost Nickels!

I believe when the NWS activates the sirens, they have a switch that activates all sirens in the county, not just those in a certain portion of the county.

Just for clarification, the NWS does not set the sirens off. A county EMA worker or other local official does. (It varies depending on the location and how things are hooked up).

This is correct. All siren systems are controlled by county officials, usually in the dispatch center. Most counties have not had the funding to upgrade to systems which allow them to selectively activate sirens depending on where the weather threat is located. This is unfortunate, since it essentially limits the realized effectiveness of the NWS' advancements in the way warnings are issued. In addition, the criteria for sounding the sirens varies widely from county to county, and is not necessarily directly tied to only being used for actual tornado warnings.

The past three times "severe" storms have been issued for Clermont County, nothing even hits where I live.

It makes me sad, because I love storms! :P
