Updated on Monday, April 28 at 9 a.m. — The final two storm sirens have been fixed and all 14 are believed to be in working condition.

The monthly siren test will be conducted on Friday if weather elements allow.

A power surge earlier this month knocked out three storm sirens and now officials are anticipating all 14 sirens will be back in working condition this week.

sirensThe storm siren located at 6th and Noble was repaired last Wednesday. Locations at 12th and Noble and Industrial Road and Ruhl Dr. are expected to be repaired this week.

After the surge, the motors needed to be rebuilt. Parts to repair the sirens were hard to locate due to the age of the sirens. However, the parts have been located, ordered and are being shipped.

The Guthrie Police Department go through routine checks and activate the sirens when needed.
