TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - With the warmer weather comes severe storms and to get ready for those spring and summer storms, the Tippecanoe Emergency Management Agency (TEMA) tested tornado sirens Saturday morning.
TEMA Director Smokey Anderson said the sirens were rezoned this year.
That means if a tornado is heading toward a certain section of the county, sirens in that section will be activated, instead of all the sirens in the county.
Now that the sirens have been tested, Anderson said it's up to the public to know what to do when they sound.
"Hopefully it will start warming up and that is what causes the severe weather," said Anderson. "We want them to be prepared to seek shelter. They should have a plan in place for their family to go inside. They should absolutely be at the lowest level."
Anderson said he did find some programming issues with some sirens on Saturday, but said those problems will be fixed.
Indiana Governor Mike Pence (R) proposed a pre-K voucher program as part of his 2014 agenda. The program would give underprivileged children access to pre-K programs.
Several generations gathered Saturday to remember a day that will live in infamy. The day marked 72 years since the attack on Pearl Harbor.
