Mystery source triggers city tornado siren

Lebanon — Storms grumbling over Boone County overnight Wednesday through Thursday caused little damage but great inconvenience for many Lebanon residents.

A tornado siren near Grant Street and Essex Drive malfunctioned, sounding at 15 minute intervals from 3:45 a.m. until about 5 a.m. when it was disconnected, said Boone County Emergency Management Agency Director Mike Martin.

Thorntown residents were jolted alert at 1 a.m. Thursday when the town’s sirens were trigged by a computer-generated warning, based on radar images near Crawfordsville, Martin said. There were no reports of damage in the Thorntown area.

Lebanon’s cycling siren could have been tripped by any of a number of causes, Lebanon Fire Chief Jason Lee said.
