The MetLife Blimp Lands at NWS Office
The NWS office is the sand-colored building at left. The large white dome is the radar that tracks the weather balloons they launch. To the right is a large satellite dish and, to the right of that, a tornado siren. Local emergency management officials placed the siren there not because it is an NWS office but because it happened to be the perfect location to fill a gap in coverage.
