Nuclear power plant inadvertently sets off sirens

An emergency siren at Seabrook Nuclear Power Station in New Hampshire was accidental, officials said Tuesday.

Just before 11 a.m., there was an “inadvertent siren activation” due to system testing, company officials reported.

The plant has confirmed there is “no emergency at the plant and no danger to the public,” according to a tweet from Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency, reconfirmed by local police departments and public officials.

Surrounding beaches in Rye, Hampton and Seabrook were temporarily closed and evacuations initiated before the alarm was called off.

The plant, which sits near the border of Massachusetts and New Hampshire, issues a statement apologizing for the “inconvenience” to surrounding communities.

More information about the power plant and emergency preparedness is available through a guide on the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency website.
