MCC is planning an immediate shipment of emergency supplies to Ukraine, but our inventory of material resources is getting low.

We need comforters, soap and towels as well as dignity, hygiene, infant care, relief, school and sewing kits. Your donations will provide relief and a tangible sign of hope to people in Ukraine and other difficult situations around the world.

To get involved, please visit mcccanada.ca/kits or mcc.org/kits.

Today (Monday) at noon, the Newton and North Newton outdoor warning sirens will be tested using the Tornado Warning siren instead of the normal Test siren and voice message. Repairs were recently completed on the sirens, and they need to be tested. The sirens will sound for 2 minutes.

The normal Monday noon test uses both a siren and a voice message (“This is a test”) and sounds for 2 minutes. A real Tornado Warning uses a siren only, no voice message, and sounds for 5 minutes. It is repeated if a confirmed threat continues to exist. But for this test today, we will shut them off after 2 minutes.

A note about tornado sirens: They are intended to be an outdoor warning device for those doing outdoor activities to take shelter. Inside your home, you should use a TV, radio, weather radio or the Harvey County Everbridge Mass Notification system to alert you to severe weather conditions.

On Monday, May 16 at noon, the Newton and North Newton outdoor warning sirens will be tested using the Tornado Warning siren instead of the normal Test siren and voice message. This is due to recent repairs done on the sirens, and the need to test them. The sirens will sound for 2 minutes.


A few notes of clarification:

Β· The normal Monday noon test uses both a siren and a voice message β€œThis is a Test” and sounds for 2 minutes.

Β· A Tornado Warning uses a siren only, no voice message, and sounds for 5 minutes. It is repeated if a confirmed threat continues to exist. For this test on Monday, we will shut them off after 2 minutes.

Β· We do not do an All Clear siren.

Β· The sirens are intended to be an outdoor warning device for those doing outdoor activities to take shelter. In your home, a TV, radio, weather radio or the Harvey County Everbridge Mass Notification system can alert you to severe weather conditions.

Β· If the skies are cloudy, the Monday test will be postponed to the following week.
