The Ross County Emergency Management Agency says a "malfunction" caused several tornado sirens to activate without there being an actual severe weather alert for the county. Ross County EMA Director Paul Minney informed iHeart Media News of the problem at 10:45am Saturday.
The sirens reportedly would activate for approximately 30 minutes, shut-down for about that same length of time, then activate again.
Minney says technicians have isolated the cause of the false alarms and corrected them, with two exceptions.
The sirens in the areas of State Route 28 and U.S. Route 50 and another near Bourneville have been deactivated until they can be repaired.
Other tornado sirens throughout Ross County are operational.
