A siren scheduled to sound periodically through the day Thursday and Friday is no cause for alarm, according to the V.I. Territorial Emergency Management Agency. It’s a test.
VITEMA and its contractor, American Signal Corp, will conduct a territory-wide test of the tsunami siren warning system between 9 and 11 a.m. and 2 and 4 p.m. both days.
"Do not be alarmed by the activation of the system," the agency warned in a news release Thursday morning. "If a real emergency were to occur, the testing of the siren system would cease immediately."
