Early Warning System Siren Growl Tests are set to take place this week in a portion of San Luis Obispo County.

The more than 100 sirens located between Cayucos and the Nipomo Mesa in the Diablo Canyon Emergency Planning Zone will each be tested at a low volume for a few seconds Tuesday and Wednesday.

The sirens can be used during local emergencies like a tsunami.

The tests help emergency officials make sure each siren is working properly.
