Nearly 200,000 people, and many schools and parks, in a nine-county area Indiana cannot be warned about tornadoes because their homes are not within the range of the tornado sirens. The WTHR team found that the sirens failed to activate thousands of times, many are broken beyond repair, and those in charge of maintaining the sirens are avoiding the repairs.
