Over in Kenton County, officials thought sounding the sirens was ‘low priority’

Over in Kenton County, officials thought sounding the sirens was ‘low priority’:

As high winds barreled down and tornado warnings were issued, dozens of sirens in Kenton County, KY​ did not sound.

Wednesday night the National Weather Service is asking… why not?

None of the 34 emergency weather sirens across Kenton County sounded, even though the National Weather Service did issue a tornado warning at 6:58 a.m.

Tommy Thompson, director of the Emergency Communications Center said the message Kenton County got from the National Weather Service was mistakenly sent as a “low priority” and that his staff simply “missed it.” http://local12.com/…/34-sirens-in-kenton-county-never-went-…

Meanwhile, the county’s CEO Kris Knochelmann – Kenton County Judge Executive continues to be silent.
