Peach Bottom to test sirens

DELTA, Pa. (WHTM) – The Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station will test its emergency warning sirens on Wednesday.

All 97 sirens in the 10-mile radius around the nuclear power station will sound at full volume for three minutes, beginning at 1 p.m.

The tests are performed twice a year.

The sirens are not a signal for residents to evacuate, but a warning to tune to a local Emergency Alert Broadcast television or radio station.
