Monthly siren testing to take place Friday after rescheduled due to severe weather

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The state's monthly outdoor warning siren test will take place Friday after severe weather prompted officials to reschedule it.

The warning sirens, meant to alert the public of any emergency, will sound around 11:45 a.m., the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency said.

The siren test was supposed to happen on Wednesday, but officials did not want to cause any public confusion since the state was experiencing heavy rain and flooding.
