Tons of news outlets are in Minneapolis, Minnesota for the Derek Chauvin trial, including CNN. Yesterday a CNN reporter was in Minneapolis starting a live broadcast when the monthly tornado siren test started to go off. The reporter in the studio freaked out and stopped the broadcast to make sure the reporter in Minneapolis was ok.

To us Minnesotans, this is hilarious. I know I was laughing when I watched it! But I can totally understand how scary those sirens must sound to someone who doesn't know what's going on. She seriously thought something terrible was happening and was just trying to make sure her fellow reporter was safe.

I'm wondering if the guy in Minneapolis, who is Josh Campbell of CNN, knew that it was a tornado siren test because he seems not phased whatsoever.

I understand why she got so worried because she must live somewhere where they don't have a need to do tornado siren tests monthly. But what gets me are my fellow Minnesotans who still post on social media asking why the sirens are going off. Well, it's the first Wednesday of the month in the spring or summertime, this has been happening this entire time you've lived in Minnesota. I suppose it goes to show that it still freaks us Minnesotans out, even though we're kind of used to it!

Speaking of tornados, the damage that they bring can cost you a lot of money. Let us pay for it! You could win up to $10,000! Go HERE to get all the details.
