Indian Point siren test successful
The Indian Point nuclear facility in Buchanan tested its emergency sirens this morning.
All 172 sirens at the nuclear power plant sounded about four minutes at around 10:40 a.m. and could be heard across Westchester, Rockland, Putnam and Orange counties.
Plant officials stress that the sirens were not a signal to evacuate. In an actual emergency, the sirens would sound to alert the public to tune in to a local EAS radio or television station for important information and direction.
The plant generates as much as 30 percent of the electricity used in New York City and Westchester County.
