grayson county severe weather and the station effectied by the storm
Posted on June 10, 2011
in the last 2 weeks of may KDSX radio had to go off the air many times due to Sherman’s Air Raid Sirens going off for tornado warnings that had been issued then. As a rule i have for me ” When the Sirens Wail, Sign Off and Take My/Your Family To Cover.” that my rule for my station in Sherman and on May 23, when the sirens wail at about 8-8:15, i signed off the air and when i went to the front porch to see anything and i saw a severely rotating wall cloud with a funnel half way to the ground just northwest of the studios and northeast of the hospital, the tornado cloud was having a hard time deciding to touch down or not and then KTEN-TV KXII-TV showed the cameras live to the twister which was highly dangerous! but thankfully it never touched down in grayson county Texas, the reason why i am making this post is that all the the EAS Manufacturers, can create an EAS Decoder Affordable for Part 15 AM/FM Radio Stations so when were not home the decoder can still tell listeners what is going on in your county.
