UPDATE: Elkins Siren: STH-10| Mannington's M-10 Gone| I Hope This Helps :D
Thanks. Is the Elkins STH still around? I found it in older street view imagery on the fire station, but it looks like it was removed in 2016.

Also, I added Capon Springs's Model 2 and Nitro's Model 7 and Modulator. I also added Nitro's removed 2001-SRN and a long-removed 3T22 in Apple Grove to the "Mystery & Removed" hidden layer.

So, now that the forum search is working again (thank you Administrator Matt!!), I have added some new locations from a search of old posts with the keywords "west virginia."
Now on the map are:
- Huntington STL-10 at 20th & Norway
- Alloy Model 5/7 at lumber plant
- Capitol Complex DSA Speaker Array on Piedmont Road Garage
- Institute xT22 on a WVSU campus building
- Terra Alta 3T22 #2 - I had no idea there were two of them! And this one is missing its lower horn array.

I also added a note to the Whelen in Salem that it was rotating during street view capture. Move up and down the street and see it change position!

I read about a possible Eclipse 8 in Fayetteville, but I have not found it yet.

New FS Model 2 installed TODAY at Great Cacapon VFD! It's also faintly audible in downtown Berkeley Springs.

I've made a significant change to the map! Considering how much West Virginia encompasses and interconnects with western Maryland, I decided to officially include it in the map. It is now Sirens of West Virginia, Western Maryland and Vicinity. With this change I have added all of the WMD sirens that are known, from Frostburg to Frederick. Old posts by Rheems1 have been extremely helpful.

There's one location I'm not sure about: Rheems1 briefly mentioned a yellow Model 2 in Little Orleans, MD. I have never heard of such a siren, but I might know where it may be. However, it's way out in the boonies and there's no street view or other online images. Maybe I'll have to make the trek out there to see for myself.

So I was last in WV in 2018. You've added so many sirens since then, even in areas I went through! I have a few to add....I'll start with the Thunderbolt 1003 at Fork Ridge VFD ;)

FANTASTIC!! That makes THREE Thunderbolts in West Virginia! Unless there's even more...

I always strive to be as accurate as possible so by all means, please fill me in on any more locations I have missed! Thanks in advance.

Added this siren to the map with credit to you.

Additionally, for the records here:
- Added the FS 2001 warning siren at Blennerhassett VFD.
- Added a FS 2001 warning siren at the DuPont plant near Parkersburg, barely visible in street view.

I doubt anyone here knows for sure, but volunteer fire departments in West Virginia tend to regard their sirens very highly (with the bad radio signal coverage, they're basically essential) so a non-working siren usually means repairing or replacing.

More changes done:
- Fully added the FS Model B at Westover VFD (I had put it in the "History & Mystery" list before I knew what a Model B looks like)
- Added the Sentry 7V8/3V8-H warning siren at the Morgantown Municipal Airport
- Added a Sterling 2V8 along 17th Street in Vienna
- Added a FS Model 2 along 41st Street in Vienna
- Added a FS Model 2 along Grand Central Avenue near 51st Street in Vienna
- Added the Sterling M-10 next to Williamstown High School
- Added the FS Model 2 at Waverly VFD
- Added the FS Modulator warning siren at Willow Island
- Added the modified Darley Model 2 at Mineral Wells VFD
