BRUNSWICK, Ohio - The Brunswick City Council voted Monday evening to reactivate the city's tornado sirens after being slammed with two tornadoes this year alone.
The council approved the motion to spend approximately $25,000 to upgrade, repair and reactivate the sirens.
The city disabled the sirens nearly six years ago when officials say they got hacked. Since then, the city has used a reverse 911 system. The system sends severe weather alerts to phones and through email if people opt to receive the service.
“There's no such thing as too much of a warning,” said Denise Stropki, a Brunswick resident who said she'd be willing to help pay to get the sirens working again.
