Weather Radio Audio Over The Years

Ever since I was young, I liked listening to weather radio broadcasts every once and a while.
Growing up in the 1990s, I can still remember when they had weather broadcasters, and later the various computerized voices that replaced them.

Here are some samples:

Interesting Audio from the 1974 Tornado Outbreak

Something I found a while back, but I thought might be worth posting was some audio recordings from the 1974 Superoutbreak that covered a bunch of states.
Before more recent outbreaks, this was the worst in the US.

Living in the Midwest, I grew up hearing about it fairly often, but until a few years back, I had not heard this audio from it.

Below are recordings that I think tell the story of what emergency crews, news crews, and in the case of Xenia, the Penn Central train crew, had to deal with that day.
