Changes are happening today on when tornado sirens can go off in some counties. While some sound the sirens when a thunderstorm warning happens, others opt to only hit the button for a tornado warning or if a funnel cloud is spotted.
Delaware, Boone, Wayne, and Marion counties are just a few of those moving to that new system, where only a tornado warning or funnel cloud will activate the siren.
Some emergency management officials say people often tune out the sirens when they‘d go off during thunderstorms.
A meteorologist with the National Weather Service says a statewide policy needs to be put in place because it can be confusing, especially if you live close to a county line.
