Early Warning System sirens to go off Tuesday, part of regularly-scheduled test

Just a heads up... if you hear sirens Tuesday along the coast, don't worry, it's just a drill.

More than 100 early warning system sirens will undergo testing for a few seconds each.

They're in the Diablo Canyon Emergency Planning Zone which spans from Cayucos down to the Nipomo Mesa.

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

Testing will also happen Wednesday.
