Sirens were just a test

Advertiser Staff

Those sirens you heard at 11:45 a.m. were the monthly test of the state Civil Defense's outdoor siren warning system.

The tests are held on the first working day of each month which in this case happened to come two days after Hawaii was subject to a tsunami warning.
