Severe Weather Reminders for Ada Residents

Severe Weather Reminders for Ada Residents

June 29, 2021 News -- KRJB-KRJM-KKCQ 0

Ada, MN — Severe weather is a constant threat throughout the hot and humid summers in Minnesota. A severe weather threat of the most severe type, typically tornadoes, will trigger communities to sound their sirens. However, because the city of Ada also uses their sirens to alert first responders for things such as a fire, there can often be confusion for new residents or visitors to the community. Ada City Administrator Ashley Larson explains the difference between a fire siren and a tornado siren while on the KRJB Kaleidoscope Program recently.

In the event of a tornado or storm that requires you take shelter, Larson notes that the City of Ada Council Chambers will be made available for a storm shelter.

And Larson adds that in the event of lightning in the area, they are required to shut down the Dekko pool for at least 30 minutes.
