UPDATE: Cloquet Police Inform Residents The Malfunctioning Warning Siren Is FIXED

 

PREVIOUSLY: Weather reports from Adam Lorch this morning mentioned that we could experience strong storms tonight and into tomorrow.  Some could contain hail, heavy rains and very windy conditions.  He says the storms are likely to stay to the South of the Twin Ports but doesn't say how far.  Just in case I thought I would share this information I received from the Cloquet Police Department  about a malfunctioning warning siren.

Wild Twin Ports Weather: 5 Tornadoes That Have Touched Down in the Duluth / Superior Area

Severe weather season is here, and we're bound to see our fair share of thunderstorms through the course of the summer.
