KIBLER (KFSM) -- An EF1 tornado that tore through the Kibler area a little over a week ago left behind some alarming damage, leaving the town unable to notify residents of another disaster.
During a test on Wednesday (May 4), Kibler officials realized that the town's storm sirens weren't working.
City leaders said they believe the issue comes from a problem inside the control panel, which could take a couple of weeks to fix.
In the meantime, this leaves the town vulnerable during severe weather.
However, thanks to the city's fire and police departments, the town has a plan B.
If there is a warning tonight, the police officers and firefighters will drive down the streets in their emergency vehicles with the sirens blaring. If residents hear the sirens, use that as a warning and take cover.
"Whenever a tornado watch is issued and a storm is coming in your area go ahead and take precautionary measures. Don't wait until it's on top of you," said Kibler police chief Roger Green.
