Malfunctioning tornado sirens in the village of Lomira had residents flooding the police department with calls Monday night.
Authorities say the sirens have malfunctioned twice in the last two weeks, but the issue should be resolved.
"It's starting to get to that point the whole crying wolf thing," said Julia O'Brien, who lives in Lomira.
She says she heard the sirens go off Monday night but after the first malfunction, she didn't leave her house.
"I kind of figured it was a false alarm," she said. "But the first time, we actually had the kids packed up and we were headed to grandma's house (because) she's got a nicer basement than we have here."
According to the Village of Lomira Police Department, the sirens malfunctioned on May 5 and again Monday, caused by faulty phone lines, which the village does not maintain.
"It's a very old system and the wiring is very old," said Police Chief Chris Mireski. "Somehow there was a malfunction in the communication between the wiring and the sirens."
