(KFVS) - The Graves County Office of Emergency will be testing the tornado/storm sirens again Friday at noon.

The test will take approximately 10 minutes.

The office made the announcement following their test on Thursday, December 30.

The test showed the tornado sirens did not work.

They found an antenna that activates the sirens needed more repairs, but the repairs were completed overnight.

Of the 11 storm sirens in the county, two were damaged by the EF-4 tornado on Dec. 10.

Emergency officials said the test on Friday will help them learn which sirens are working fully and which ones might need more repairs or need to be replaced.

Officials are advising residents to sign up for weather alerts on their phone by using the county’s Code Red system while the sirens are repaired.
