A few hours ago a funnel cloud was seen forming just south of the city. Elwood Firefighters sounded the Severe Weather Sirens (commonly referred to as the Tornado Sirens). Please understand that these sirens are designed to notify individuals who are OUTDOORS that severe weather is approaching so they can seek the safety of shelter indoors. They are not meant for people to be able to hear INSIDE the safety of their homes.

The City has urged citizens and business owners via Facebook posts and newspaper articles to sign up for the REACH Alert Notification System that was put in place in February of this year. It is very easy to sign up, however if you experience issues or do not have access to a computer or the internet, there is a toll-free number for you to call and a representative will assist you. The entire process only takes a few minutes. You can sign up for a phone call to a land line or cell phone, a text message, or an email - or a combination of any of the three. (please see photo of the letter initially posted in February and several times since then for instructions on how to sign up)

Again, we cannot stress enough how valuable this system is. A notification was sent out right after the sirens went off to notify residents the purpose for the sirens. This system has been and will be used for other notifications such as water main breaks, boil advisory, road closures, and any other important message that needs to be sent immediately to citizens and business owners.

Please see the revised invitation for the Hometown Heroes Dedication Ceremony that will take place this Wednesday, July 1st at 6:00pm in front of the Elwood Municipal Building. We are honored to have Sgt. Major Lucas Turner, who just returned from his 3rd combat tour, say the prayer.

As a reminder, there will not be any seating provided, but guests are welcome to bring their own folding chairs. We do ask that guests practice safe social distancing before, during, and after the ceremony. Thank you!
