Tornado Siren Activation False Alarm on Saturday in Steuben County
Monday Jul 25, 2016 10:58am
On Saturday just after 1 p.m. you may have heard the Tornado Sirens activated, but it was a computer related error.
In a news release late Saturday afternoon, Emergency Management Director Randy Brown said Steuben County’s Tornado Sirens were activated county wide just after 1 p.m. Brown said it was immediately determined that both Steuben County Communications/911 Dispatchers and the City of Angola Dispatchers were not responsible for the activation of the sirens.
Brown said after investigating further it was determined to be a computer related error that activated the sirens. Brown said their siren maintenance company worked to locate and correct the error so that it will not occur again.
