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.
