Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant tests emergency warning system

Residents near the Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant had their quiet disrupted by loud sirens as the plant tested its emergency warning system Wednesday.

There are more than 150 sirens surrounding Indian Point. Federal regulations require regular testing of the sirens in the 10-mile Emergency Planning Zone around the plants. The sirens tell residents in the area that they need to monitor radio and television for information about what is happening at Indian Point.

The testing of the emergency warning system, which occurs several times a year, will continue all day.
