AUTAUGA CO., AL (WSFA) - The Autauga County tornado sirens are back working, according to Autauga County Emergency Management Agency Director Gary Weaver. A silent test was conducted Tuesday and the system passed.

Monday, the tornado sirens were reported as not working, according to the county's EMA. The agency said it had crews working to repair the dysfunctional sirens.

In the event that residents need a way to "stay weather aware" it is highly recommended that they have more than one way to receive weather warnings, including smartphone apps. The WSFA First Alert Weather app is free and available on both the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store and sends localized weather alerts to users.

Weaver said another test is planned for July 3 at 10 a.m.
