Update: TMI siren test sounds all 96 alarms

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. (WHTM) -

In a test of the Three Mile Island new emergency siren system today, all 96 alarms sounded.

The test started 12:15 Thursday afternoon and sirens sounded for three minutes.

Last June, none of the 96 sirens sounded. Officials blamed that on a software glitch.

The new system will be officially put into service sometime this year. Once the new system is in place, the old sirens will be removed.
