Pass the word! Tornado/severe weather test for Ligonier set for tonight at 7pm.

  • APRIL 10 - TORNADO/SEVERE WEATHER TEST FOR LIGONIER:Tornado Siren Test: April 10, 2015, 7:00PM. When severe weather is predicted/imminent The Ligonier Volunteer Hose Company #1 will (if possible) activate the The Severe Weather Siren. The Siren will sound a continuous wail for 3 minutes. If this is heard, all individuals should seek shelter below ground. If that is not an option, then a sturdy section of a building, preferably a corner. There are many approaches for personal safety during severe weather. Research your options for your best course of action. Once the danger has passed, The Ligonier Volunteer Hose Company #1 will (if possible) activate the All Clear signal. The Siren will sound with 3 short cycles indicating the All Clear. Monitor Ligonier Radio for the all clear announcement, if you are able to (safely) for any updates. Note: Ligonier Radio is on AM 1620 and FM 100.9 in the borough. On computers, like a laptop streaming at, but probably the best way to monitor your local radio station in a basement will be on the Tunein Radio app (free) on your cell phone.
