New Haven, Mo - At 1 p.m. this afternoon the EMA Director conducted their routine monthly test of the Emergency Alert Siren.

As a reminder in the event of severe weather, depending on the severity  there are two different types of sirens you will hear.

When a severe Thunderstorm Warning has been issued you will hear a winding up and down siren in 30-second intervals.

If a Tornado Warning has been issued a 3-minute steady siren will sound and everyone should seek shelter immediately.

Note:  There is no longer an all-clear signal.
