LA CRESCENT, Minnesota (WXOW) - Sirens across La Crosse were sounding off on Thursday, but not all of them were working properly. There was at least one siren in La Crescent that did not work.
The La Crescent and La Crosse police departments say that when the sirens are tested, they send out officers to monitor the sirens.
La Crosse officials say it's not uncommon for some sirens not to work due to their age. Some have been around since the 1940's.
Officials say it's up to the city to replace or repair sirens that do not work.
