Someone within the City of Dallas, Texas hacked every single one of Dallas’s 156 emergency weather sirens.

The sirens typically are used for tornado warnings.

On Friday night, just minutes before midnight,  all of the sirens were activated. After sounding for an hour and a half officials decided that the only way to shut them off was to unplug the radio systems and the repeater.

The system remained off until Monday.
