8pm. I'm on the west side of Greensboro... New Garden and Horse Pen Creek area. Heard a FREAKIN LOUD air raid siren go off for about 2 minutes. I was in the military and heard them often for weekly tests and some action in Storm part 1. I'm positive that's what it was.

Heard it a few months ago too.

Anyone else hear it?

From the airport?
How about the tank farm?
I live downtown so I didn't hear it.

If I had to guess exact location I'd say it came from the Sheetz gas station area off of New Garden Road.

Aren't those big gas tanks there? I didn't hear it but I'm closer in.

The tank farm is too far from the general are where I heard it. If it came from the tank farm to where I was, the entire western half of greensboro would have heard it.

Maybe Sheetz is trying a new MTO signal, kind of like Krispy Kreme's hot doughnut sign.

Anybody find out the source of the sirens yet? I live in Oak Ridge and didn't hear anything (was outside around that time.)

UNCG has a siren they test regularly, but that would probably be too far away.

Don't hear that one either and I live less than a mile from campus.

Glad I missed it. I would have been tempted to jump under a desk.
