Woodward Receives Donation To Purchase New Warning Sirens

KSCB News - April 24, 2012 8:13 am

Apache Corp. has donated $350,000 to

replace the tornado warning system in Woodward, where six people

were killed this month by a twister that struck shortly after

midnight.

The oil and gas company announced the donation Monday. Woodward

officials say lightning knocked out electricity to the town’s

warning system, and few residents heard the sirens as the storm

approached on April 15.

Six people died, 30 were injured and more than 200 homes and

businesses were damaged or destroyed.

Apache Corp. says the donation will allow Woodward to buy a

tornado system that can operate even if power is lost.
