LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -

In Wednesday’s warning siren test in Longview, one of the sirens didn’t function correctly.

A siren located at Gilmer Road and Heston Street stopped working due to an electrical problem, according to the Longview Fire Department. The siren started working during the test, then failed due to a problem with the backup battery.

The city hopes to have the siren fixed in time for a test next Wednesday.
