Sirens sound in Jamestown, tornado touches down in rural area


JAMESTOWN -- Emergency sirens in the city of Jamestown went off three times Sunday evening as a series of four tornado warnings were issued for Stutsman County.

Apparently, however, only one of the tornados touched down 10 to 12 miles west-northwest of Jamestown, the same one that spurred the initial use of the emergency siren.
