Sirens Didn't Sound In Hartford During Tornado Warning
HARTFORD, SD -

Sirens didn't sound during a tornado warning in Hartford Thursday afternoon.

Mayor Paul Zimmer says complaints flooded his office after the storm passed the southeast South Dakota city. Zimmer tells KELOLAND News that the city has no control over when the sirens activate.  Zimmer also said he has sent an immediate inquiry to Emergency Management, Hartford Fire and Rescue, and Metro Communications, questioning why the sirens did not sound.

"I just want the residents know we're looking into it," Zimmer said.

Metro Communications or the Minnehaha County Emergency Manager determines when the warning sirens are activated. It's unknown at this time why they sirens didn't warn the community.

Calls to Emergency Manager Lynn DeYoung were not immediately returned Thursday afternoon.
