Since a 2010 thunderstorm silenced the Two Harbors weather warning sirens, the city has remained quiet during hazardous weather events.


Lake County Emergency Management Director BJ Kohlstedt told the News-Chronicle in 2010 that the warning system needed to be overhauled. On Tuesday, she and Steve Olson from the Lake County Sheriff's Office appeared in front of the Lake County Board of Commissioners to propose that the siren system be retired completely.
