Tornado Too Fast for Sirens

Tornado Too Fast for Sirens

Forecasters say Stoughton’s weekend tornado was simply too quick for them to sound the emergency sirens.

The National Weather Service’s Tim Halbach says the tornado on Saturday formed and faded before they had a chance to properly warn everyone. The tornado destroyed one home and one business, and damaged nearly 200 other homes. No one was seriously hurt. Halbach says the tornado quickly formed, and was almost gone by the time it showed-up on their radar.
