Sallisaw's Sirens Set Off by Wiring Problem

A wiring problem caused Sallisaw's tornado sirens to sound off at about 6 p.m. Monday, although no tornado had been spotted. City Manager Bill Baker reported to Sallisaw City Commissioners at their meeting Monday evening that the sirens sounded in error when a rural fire department was dispatched. Unfortunately, the sirens sounded during a severe thunderstorm, which sent some Sallisaw residents to their tornado shelters. City officials said Police Chief Terry Franklin would be looking into and finding the fault. Stay tuned to KXMX for the latest news, or visit www.kxmx.com. By Sally Maxwell, Senior News Director
