Last updated on Thursday, March 8, 2007

(INDIANAPOLIS) - Tornado sirens in Indianapolis did not sound during the second of two test tornado warnings Wednesday.

Marion County Emergency Management Agency Director John Ball says his agency did not receive the signal to push the button to start the sirens.

20 of the county's 144 emergency sirens failed to sound. The statewide test was held in part to draw attention to the upcoming tornado season.
