The Clarion-Ledger, 5/16/8

Hinds County has been instructed to resubmit its federal grant application seeking $1.6 million to replace 62 warning sirens.

Some of the sirens didn’t work when tornadoes swept through the area on April 4. At least 16 sirens are not working now.

County Emergency Operations Director Larry Fisher said he will resubmit the application to the Mississippi Department of Homeland Security by early next week.

The application also has to be rewritten to be in the 2008-09 federal budget.
