LINDEN, Ind. (WLFI) - The recent storms that passed through our area caused several storm sirens to go off. But, a siren in the northern Montgomery County failed to sound.
According to Montgomery County Emergency Management Agency Director Shari Harrington, they perform tests on the sirens twice a month.
She says, to her knowledge, the Linden siren was working as early as last month.
It was brought to her attention Thursday that it did not sound Wednesday or the last test date.
She says the town council is responsible for repair of their storm sirens
"Each small town has an agreement with the Emergency Management Agency that the responsibility of the upkeep of the sirens is their responsibility," Harrington said. "But, they did not know that siren was not going off until I made them aware."
Harrington says the siren was set to be repaired today. She says barring any part orders, it should be working tonight.

The drop in temperatures brings the potential for health dangers, such as hypothermia and frost bite. The bitter temperatures can pose a threat for children, adults and pets.
As it stands Wednesday, there will be no FEMA aid for tornado survivors in Howard County.
