New Columbia resident Vicky Pike writes, "Tracy McCarol, Chad Wheat, Mike Keltner and Jake Spoon check at my tornado siren this morning. Problem diagnosed and Mike Keltner is checking on availablity of parts and who can replace the part for us. Jake is highly interested in weather equipment so he came along to learn. Thanks Jake for all your help.

"They tested the Lindsey Wilson siren and it's working so that only leaves the one in the Walmart neighborhood in need of repair."
