Contra Costa Warning Siren Called a Malfunction
Emergency officials in Contra Costa County say a warning siren that went off this morning was not related to a crisis. Bay City News reports officials attribute the alarm to an unknown malfunction just after 7:00 AM. A manager for the warning system says a real emergency would have prompted an automated phone call to residents with instructions.
