Came across this 2T-120 at work today. Pole that it was mounted on was rotted and it toppled during a thunderstorm. Still spun but the bearings were a little stiff. From what I could see the motor looked ok.

I didn't inquire on it. I don't have a reason to have a siren, and more then likely it will be repaired and put back into service.

This could be a siren we didn't know about. Any idea where this was installed, exactly? Like streets/street view? :P

Hello all! I just joined the forums here, as I am a huge fan of anything siren-related. (And weather related for that matter.) I figured I'd share a few of the sirens that I have seen and gotten pictures of.

The first ever tornado siren that I have ever seen was in Lampasas, Texas.

The siren is a Sentry 16V1VT-B. :)
