After a few calls and some digging, Alyson Courtney found out it was a malfunction and the National Weather Service confirmed that to me as well. It was finally over at 12:24AM Monday. That was 36 minutes of my kids asking me what was going on out there!
Yes, annoying, but I discovered something new. We are accustomed to the constant wail of a tornado warning, but there are actually 6 different tones and they all have 6 different meanings.
Here they are from the city of Little Rock website PLUS, there's a link to the siren manufacturer, Whelen. You can actually hear recordings of the tones. Enjoy annoying your coworkers with this today! LOL
