Cape Girardeau to get more tornado sirens

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

The city of Cape Girardeau is getting more tornado sirens this year.

According to Fire Chief Rick Ennis, crews will be installing five or six more sirens. The city already has four.

The money for them reportedly comes from revenue from the casino.

"Its and overdue project with the outdoor sirens and we've wanted to do it for a long time," said Cape Girardeau Fire Chief Rick Ennis. "I think the citizens want the sirens, so it's a good step in the right direction."

Chief Ennis says the city hopes to install more sirens as more money becomes available.
