DALLAS (KXAN) -- Reports are pouring in of tornado sirens sounding throughout the Dallas area, including downtown. That's despite there being no storms in the area.
A city spokesperson says the sirens are going off due to a system malfunction and emergency crews are working to fix the problem. The city's Office of Emergency Management says there is no emergency and they are asking people not to call 911. The surge in 911 calls has caused a wait time up to 2 minutes.
The city says fire crews are manually shutting down the sirens and a complete shutdown could take up to three hours. The city says they're trying to determine what caused the malfunction.
Here's a look at what people in the Dallas area are saying on social media:
