Three Panhandle Tornado Sirens Fail Tests

Posted: Updated:

SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (AP) — Three tornado sirens in the Nebraska Panhandle have failed their tests.

A siren in Harrisburg, one in Morrill and one Terrytown didn't go off during Wednesday's checks.

Jerry Bretthauer, of the Region 22 Emergency Management Agency, says signal issues could have caused the problems. He says workers are checking for the exact reasons so repairs can be made or signal issues resolved.

Bretthauer says the Harrisburg siren is tested every month and usually passes. He says that until Wednesday no problems had been reported with the Morrill and Terrytown sirens.
