The R-C Morning Report

The Minden siren went off four times on Wednesday and Thursday and has been silent since. According to the County Manager's Office, it was never officially turned on.

After reading the R-C's story, Channel 2 News came down to Minden to tape the siren at noon on Friday and it didn't go off. The county is still working to get the siren on at noon only and Minden is still planning on finding away to revive the 6 p.m. siren on its own.

Stay tuned.
