Across Davidson County, Tennessee, on Wednesday night, tornado sirens wailed as a powerful storm system marched across the Metro area. But the sirens were sounding some 15 minutes after the National Weather Service had canceled tornado warnings for the area.
It was a new issue, in a long line of concerns that some city officials have raised about the antiquated system.
In Davidson County there are currently 93 tornado sirens placed strategically throughout the area. However, the sirens are all tied together, meaning officials cannot set them off individually.
