Don’t be alarmed by sirens in St. Lucie County

You may hear loud sirens Thursday in parts of St. Lucie County.

St. Lucie County, Martin County, and FPL will be testing sirens within a 10-mile radius of the St. Lucie Nuclear Power Plant, according to a twitter post by the St. Lucie County government.

The test begins at noon Thursday.

Martin County officials say that before and after the sirens blare, a message will be broadcast on the sirens' public address system stating, "This is only a test."
