(CRAWFORDSVILLE, IN) - An internal investigation reportedly underway as to why tornado sirens weren't sounded as strong storms blew through Montgomery County Tuesday night.

Emergency Management Director Fred Davis says their policy is to not sound the sirens unless a twister is spotted.

He says several trained weather spotters were out Tuesday night, including himself.

Davis says, even with a tornado warning issued by the National Weather Service, that wouldn't bring about "pushing the button."

The Crawfordsville Police Department is looking into what happened.

Montgomery County sustained heavy damage from high winds.

The National Weather Service is working to determine if a tornado did hit the Crawfordsville area.

Davis also says the sheriff's department is in charge of turning the sirens on.
