Oconee Nuclear Station warning sirens to be tested June 4-9
Duke Energy announced it will test five of its Oconee Nuclear Station warning sirens near and on the Clemson University campus for brief periods between June 4 and 9.
The sirens are being upgraded and each will be tested for 10 to 15 seconds in two intervals during these time periods on these dates:
Thursday, June 4
- Vineyard Road near Clemson Presbyterian Church (7-11 a.m.)
- Amtrak parking lot at U.S. 123 (Calhoun Memorial Highway) and College Avenue (1-5 p.m.)
Friday, June 5
- Clemson/Central Motor Pool near Old Central Road (7-11 a.m.)
Tuesday, June 9
- Williamson Road and Heisman Street (7-11 a.m.)
- Cherry Road, east campus (1-5 p.m.)
Note that if there is a true emergency all of the nuclear warning sirens will sound for three minutes.
These tests do not include the Clemson University warning sirens, which broadcast tone and voice alerts in the event of emergencies or approaching dangerous weather and lightning.
