Masonville Emergency Warning Siren Not Working

The City of Masonville lost their emergency warning siren this week. Delaware County Emergency Management Coordinator Mike Ryan says the siren was struck by lightning when the thunderstorms moved through earlier this week. The siren no longer works, so the community is working to secure a replacement warning system. Until that happens, the Masonville Fire Department will warn residents of severe weather by blowing the sirens on their trucks. Ryan says Masonville residents can also access severe weather information and warnings through NOAA weather radio, area radio stations such as KMCH, TV, internet and cell phones.
