Tyler Warning Sirens Activated Friday Morning

The Tyler warning sirens, activated if a rotation indicating a tornado is spotted in the area, were sounded on Friday morning.

Residents could hear the sirens all over Tyler. While no touchdowns were reported, funnel clouds and rotations were spotted within the city limits.

The warning was especially important as news was coming in of injuries and damage in Canton, TX, and rotations were being reported by weather-spotters over many parts of East Texas.

The Smith County Chapter of the American Red Cross put St. Louis Baptist Church on standby for emergency shelter if it's needed.

St. Louis Baptist Church is located at 4000 Frankston Highway in Tyler.
