MARYSVILLE, Ohio (WCMH) — Some residents in Union County experienced a bit of a longer emergency sirens test Wednesday than what they are used to.  

The Union County Sheriff’s Office says there was a bit of confusion when it came to turning off the regularly scheduled tornado siren test. The emergency test went to just past 12:15 p.m. 

The sheriff’s office says two agencies work together to control the sirens and there was a miscommunication as to who was to turn them off. There is no emergency in the area.
