Siren test Monday.


OCEANA COUNTY — Oceana County Emergency Management will conduct a siren test Monday, June 4, at 10 a.m.

Oceana County’s severe weather outdoor warning sirens are being tested on the first Monday of each month through September.

If there is the possibility of impending severe weather on the day of the test, it will be cancelled or rescheduled, said OCEM Coordinator James Duram.

“Outdoor warning sirens are intended to notify people who are outdoors that there is a severe weather situation occurring, and they should seek shelter immediately. These are not intended to warn you if you are inside your home,” Duram said.

The county has seven active sirens in Pentwater, Walkerville, Hart, Shelby, Ferry, New Era, and Stony Lake.

If you hear a siren blowing the long steady warning tone during possible stormy weather, it means a tornado warning has been issued because a tornado has been spotted in the immediate area, and you need to take shelter immediately.
