Successful Siren Test In Longview

       A much needed successful test today, in a previously troubled emergency warning system in Longview. The monthly test of the Longview emergency siren system went off without a hitch. It was the first test of the troubled system since repairs and upgrades were made by the city. Residents and business owners in Pine Tree have seen the system fail numerous times before; and today's test was welcome, if loud, music to their ears.

   "Well we were kind of wondering but it went off good and turned out real well you know that's good" said Pine Tree businessman John Pollard.

    "I was hoping that it would work my daughters here on Wednesday taking dance and you never know when a tornado might come through" said area resident Ginger Berry.

   All 16 siren locations sounded and functioned properly.
