GA town wants $135,000 for storm warning systems
ROME, FLOYD COUNTY (WRCB) - Rome, Georgia residents may soon have more warning when severe weather hits.
Emergency officials are applying for a $135,000 grant, to pay for tornado sirens at five parks.
The sirens would cost about $75,000.
Another $25,000 would be used to buy a thousand weather radios, many of which would go to the public.
The rest of the money would go towards a weather warning system for the deaf, which uses strobe lights to warn of severe weather.
