Guam - A $2 million issue for a siren system will be the focus of a roundtable discussion tomorrow morning. Senator Judith Guthertz will be meeting with the Office of Civil Defense and Guam Homeland Security to find out what has really happened with the monies that were used for the system, why hasn't it been installed and how are we to ensure the protection of residents should we receive another tsunami warning.

The meeting was called after it was revealed that the agency has in its possession sirens that could have been used during the recent tsunami warning stemmed from an earthquake in Chile. Homeland Security officials have said that the siren system sits in a warehouse because of an unresolved protest.

The roundtable will take place at 9am Friday in the Legislature's Public Hearing Room.
