St. Louis County says it still has not finished installing the new siren system, leaving about 115,000 residents not covered. This includes parts of Wildwood, Spanish Lake, Valley Park, Des Peres and Jennings.

The County says there have been some problems with getting approval for installation of the sirens, and the entire new warning system will not be ready until the end of the summer.

Officials say severe weather warnings are sent out via Twitter for those with access to a computer or smart phone.
