Weather sirens to be tested Wednesday

By Staff
GAINESVILLE - Hall County will conduct an audible test of the severe weather warning system Wednesday about 10:00 a.m. The sirens will sound for about three minutes.

Sound tests will not be conducted if there is a severe weather watch or warning in effect for the county. The tornado sirens are tested using the wail alert tone once every three months. Other than these previously announced tests, all sirens should be considered to be an actual tornado warning.

Hall County's Warning System is tested silently every morning at 9:00.
