Tornado siren fails test


WAUSAU, Wis (WSAU)   Wausau public safety officials are investigating why the Riverview School sirens didn't go off during yesterday afternoon's weekly test.

The tornado sirens are tested at 1:15pm on the first Monday of each month. But the Riverview sirens - which notify most of the north end of the city in case of emergency - were silent. The extreme weather during the winter may be a factor. A city public works employee was on-scene to investigate.

During the failed test, sirens from other parts of the city could be heard in the Riverview neighborhood.
