The storm sirens should be sounding a couple of times Wednesday, and programming will be briefly interrupted on radio and TV. That's part of Indiana's Spring Weather Awareness Campaign from the National Weather Service. It is a good idea to have your plans ready for those times when the sirens wail and you're told there really is a severe storm or tornado approaching. Know where to go at home, school, or work and have food and drink ready. Connect with family and friends and ask about their plans.

It had to be a troubling sight, seeing smoke rising from the already burned-out debris of First Christian Church in Owensboro. OPD Officer Michael Hathaway tells WIKY News that officers arrested a 16-year-old boy accused of setting fires Sunday afternoon among the debris at 700 J.R. Miller Boulevard. The teen faces charges of burglary and arson and has been sent to a juvenile detention center in Bowling Green. A bolt of lightning is suspected of starting last week's fire that destroyed the church.
