Hardin County Gets Tornado Siren

Hardin County Gets Tornado Siren (Image 1)

The city of Kenton, in Hardin County, about 60 miles northwest of Columbus, did not have a tornado siren for more than 40 years, until this spring.

After being voted down once several years ago, city officials and local law enforcement teamed up with the City Council to authorize a financial allotment to put up a tornado siren.

The new tornado siren at the Kenton Fire Department replaced the last one that failed back in the early 1970s, in the wake of a powerful tornado that hit the city on May 10, 1973.

Residents said they are generally pleased with the addition of the siren, which is tested every Wednesday at noon.
