Weather Warning Systems

  • Severe Weather Warning

In order to better protect the community, City of Corbin has installed the severe Weather Warning System. If a Tornado Warning is issued, the Corbin Police Dispatcher sounds the sirens.

  • What do the Sirens sound like?

The Sirens are programmed for two warnings. First, a Tornado Warning, there’s a long constant tone for a duration of five (5) minutes followed by five (5) minutes off. Then the pattern is repeated. Below is a sample audio clip. Second, Hazardous Material Spill or Evacuation, a series of short burst tones. During this siren you can call emergency services at (606) 528-1122 for Police Dispatch or (606) 528-2411 for the Fire Department for information on the affected areas.
