Tornado Sirens To Cellphones

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Tornado sirens around the state could one day be replaced by cellphone warnings, a technology that's cheaper and potentially more reliable. Cellphone alerts are already being used, but in conjunction with tornado sirens.

Emergency officials in a number of counties say there's value to having multiple warning systems. However, sirens can be costly to maintain and repair, and they're not always audible to people indoors.
Wisconsin Emergency Management spokesman Tod Pritchard says when a tornado warning is issued in a certain county, a free alert is issued to all the cellphones within range of the cell towers in that county.

The alerts don't work on older cellphones. Residents can contact their wireless providers to see if their phones work with the new system.

Mayo Bill Continues It's Course

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) A reworked proposal for a publicly aided Mayo Clinic expansion plan relies on a heavier local match and requires a bigger private ante before the state of Minnesota chips in.

 

Revisions aired today in the Senate Taxes Committee would withhold state dollars until $250 million is spent on upgrading the clinic and associated development around Rochester. That's $50 million higher than the trigger in a companion House bill.

But in exchange, the Senate proposal would allow for a higher total state contribution, approaching $400 million in aid and tax breaks. A range of local taxes would generate at least $128 million.

Mayo says none of the public money would go toward its buildings. The goal is to have the state assist with roads, sewers and other public infrastructure.

Police Travel To Honor Their Fallen

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Two University of Wisconsin-Madison police officers are traveling to Boston to join thousands of others Wednesday in honoring the MIT officer who was killed in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings.

UW-Madison Police Department spokesman Marc Lovicott says Detective Peter Grimyser and Officer Juan Avila are leaving Monday at noon. They will drive 18 hours to the Boston area to attend the memorial service for 26-year-old Officer Sean Collier. Officials have said Collier was shot Thursday night on the MIT campus in Cambridge by the Boston Marathon bombers.

A spokeswoman for the Middlesex District Attorney's office in Massachusetts says 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is expected to face charges in his death.
