Emergency notification siren malfunction
OSWEGO COUNTY, N.Y. -- One of the emergency notification sirens surrounding the nuclear power plants in Scriba inadvertently sounded Friday.

Officials stress that there was not an emergency at any of the three nuclear power plants.
The other sirens in the system are functioning properly and backup measures are in place while the siren system is being repaired.
The cause for the sounding is under investigation.
