New sirens tested in Boone Co., Columbia during state tornado drill

Boone County’s new outdoor warning sirens were tested as part of a statewide tornado drill Tuesday afternoon.

The sirens went off across Mid-Missouri at 1:30 p.m.

Boone County was recently divided into northern, central, and southern zone where sirens were individually tested.

The University of Missouri also tested its mass alert and warning system at 1:30.

ABC 17 News checked in with officials there who said this was the first time they tested the system when all classes were in session, and they said the test went smoothly.
