How Do People Receive Tornado Warnings?

From the National Weather Association Annual Meeting currently in progress:

75% on television
67% heard siren
44% phone call or text message
33% word of mouth
28% commercial radio
27% weather app
22% weather was changing in ways suggestive of a tornado
13% NOAA weather radio
10% internet source (other than app)
  2% email
  2% did not know tornado was coming

This pertained to the Moore, Oklahoma, tornado in 2013. More than one answer could be given if they learned of the tornado from different sources.
