Noisy nukes

    Those within 10 miles of Limerick’s Exelon Nuclearn Monday will want to bring earplugs. At 2 p.m., the plant will test its new siren.

    Limerick Generating Station will test two sirens at 2 and 2:30 p.m. as part of its new state-of-the-art emergency alert system, the Mercury reports.

     

    The tones should be about three minutes each.
