St. Joseph Sirens

Residents of St. Joseph will hear flood warning sirens being tested tomorrow at 3 in the afternoon and emergency officials want to make sure no one mistakes them for the real thing.

Officials released their finalized emergency plan calling for sirens to sound only if a levee fails, they will not be sounded for evacuations, voluntary or mandatory. St. Joseph emergency management coordinator George Albert says says the tornado sirens will have a different sound for the flood emergency.
