Garden City Telegram - 07-06

Small tornadoes called landspouts touched down in Finney and Lane counties within about 20 minutes of each other Friday afternoon, sending sirens blaring in Garden City. The Garden City Police Department sounds the sirens throughout Garden City and Holcomb if funnels begin to descend, regardless of whether the area is in a tornado watch or not, said Sgt. Lana Urteaga. After hearing that a tornado was on the ground, the department initiated the sirens at about 4:45 p.m. and warned residents of the danger on Facebook, she said.
