Five Consecutive Sirens Heard in Haifa

It's 10:50 AM. The air raid warning siren sounds in Haifa. Inch and I are in the hallway; she's rubbing her face against my laptop.
10:56 AM: another siren.
11:00 AM: ambulances
11:01 AM: another siren
11:04 AM: another siren
11:12 AM: another siren

I'm back in Haifa after spending Friday and Saturday in southern Israel. The highway leading out of Haifa towards the south was hit by a missile on Friday morning. We passed by the spot on our way out of the city, going to Ashdod. The place my roommate works at was also hit that morning. So was the next neighbourhood over.
