Technical Glitch Causes Tornado Sirens To Sound In Milford & Arnolds Park

Fri 6-19-2020

(Spirit Lake)-- Officials say some technical issues at the Dickinson County Communications Center at the courthouse in Spirit Lake caused tornado sirens to go off in Milford and Arnolds Park around 9:30 or so last (Thurs.) evening, even though there were no warnings in effect at the time and there were no reports of funnel clouds or tornadoes in the area.

Officials say there was a lightning strike earlier in the evening at the Communications Center that briefly knocked out some 911 and radio service.
