NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Nashville Mayor David Briley said today that he would ask the Metro Council for $500,000 in equipment in order to to upgrade Nashville's tornado warning system.

This announcement comes one day after tornado sirens sounded some 15 minutes after the National Weather Service had canceled tornado warnings for the area.
