Huntingburg tornado siren out of service

From Local Sources

HUNTINGBURG — As of today, the tornado siren located beside the Huntingburg Utility Front Office, 508 N. Van Buren St., is not functioning.

Federal Field Services has been notified and will be inspecting the siren at a later date. Residents are encouraged to be aware of the problem and to verify that their SAME weather radios have fresh batteries and are ready to notify you of any severe weather coming to the area.

As a reminder, sirens are put in place as a backup to notify residents when threatening weather is approaching. Sirens are not to replace your own notification process, such as NOAA weather radios.
