    Yes. The sirens are "tested" on the first Saturday of each month at 1:00PM when they sound for several minutes.

    When DH and I saw this tornado report on local news last evening, we couldn't believe that there was a tornado less than six miles north of us :eek: There had been storms in the area during the night, but there was never any indication or warning about possible tornadoes, and we never heard emergency sirens. :scared:

    Greetings from soggy Mackinac Island. DH and I had hoped for a nice long weekend on the charming island in northern Michigan, but it started raining about half-way up I-75 (2 hours) and hasn't really stopped. It is so foggy that we can't see across the lake to the mainland that is usually visible from the condos where we stay. It's also windy with temps getting into the low 60s today.

    There is supposed to be a break in the rain late this afternoon, so we might take the horse-drawn shuttle into town for dinner. Until then, we'll spend the day hanging out in our cozy loft condo, watch TV, and read.

    Meteorologist to Metro Detroit: Enjoy last warm day

    Tom Greenwood, The Detroit News 7:48 a.m. EST November 11, 2014

    The weather wizards at the National Weather Service have some advice for those living in southeastern Michigan: Get out and enjoy the warm temperatures while you can.

    “Tuesday will be the last warm day for awhile,” meteorologist Sara Schultz said. “The high in the metro area will be about 60 degrees, but then we get a cold front moving in this afternoon that will drop temperatures into the 32 to 29 degree range.”

    The warm weather is due to balmy winds coming up from the South, but unfortunately, they’ll be chased out of the metro area by a low-pressure system that will keep temperatures in the mid 30s through the weekend and into next week...

    Metro Detroit ties record as arctic air blasts through

    Tom Greenwood, The Detroit News 8:05 a.m. EST November 18, 2014

    Get ready to pour some hot sauce down your shorts because it’s going to be a very cold couple of days.

    An arctic blast sent temperatures plummeting and equaling a record set in 1880, according to the National Weather Service in White Lake Township.

    “The record low for this date was 11 degrees set in 1880,” said meteorologist Rachel Kulik.

    A check of the NWS website at 7 a.m., showed 11 degrees at Detroit Metro, equaling the 134-year-old record.

    “Incidentally, the record for the lowest daytime high of 18 degrees was also set on the same date in 1880,” Kulik said...

    "No, that loud boom you heard wasn’t a gunshot. Nor was it an earthquake that rattled your windowpanes.

    “Other people described it like a truck had literally hit their house,” said Environment Canada meteorologist Geoff Coulson.

    That sound was likely the result of a frost quake — a weather phenomenon that residents of Southwestern Ontario could be hearing more about as the winter chill sets in across the region.

    Despite Coulson’s official title — he is the federal agency’s warning-preparedness specialist — Coulson said frost quakes are fairly benign. They occur when a patch of ground that is saturated with moisture freezes and the underground ice cracks, sometimes because it melts and then freezes again, causing expansion."
