The city is testing new sirens in Waipahu and Diamond Head areas today.
In Waipahu, the siren test will be between 9-11:30 a.m. on Leoku Street.
The test at Diamond Head Beach at Kuulei Cliffs Park will be from 1 to 3:30 p.m.
The new sirens are part of the statewide siren modernization project. Residents nearby may hear the siren sound six to eight times for 30-second to 1-minute intervals during the identified timeframe. Testing will include short blasts known as “burps.” During the tests, emergency management officials and technicians will check that installation work on the sirens has been completed properly.
