SHERMAN- Several Sherman residents were woken up early Thursday morning by the sound of a flood siren.

The flood alarm at Archer Street went off just before six o’clock Thursday morning. Sherman fire officials say it’s due to a system malfunction.

The siren is triggered when waters rise, but in this case water was not rising, and the alarm sounded for nearly 12 minutes.

Officials say crews are working on the problem and hope to correct it Thursday afternoon.

    Thank you for this. After all the rain lately, we weren't sure what was going on. Nice to hear it was just a false alarm.

    i would have ignored it. i used to live by there and it seemed that alarm went off once a month as per testing. guess that's what i get for living by a school behind the beloved piggly wiggly. the candlelight apartments were sweet though.
