The McKinney Parks and Recreation Department has installed lightning strike detectors for seven fields. Each detector has its own weather station and a public address system. A siren will sound if there is lightning in the area.
A lightning indicator is also available on the web page for each of the seven fields. If the rectangle is green, the fields at the park are clear. If the rectangle is red, lightning is in the area. The message will also be shown in words. The widgets refresh every five minutes.
