Tornadoes are very common in the Southeast, but an early warning system can save many lives.
The Houston County Commission just awarded a bid to Fort Walden Communications to place sirens across Houston County and within Dothan city limits.
These sirens are for Homeland Security, bad weather and even chemical spills.
By summer, there should be 22 sirens around the area.
