COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) - If you hear something out of the ordinary Tuesday, don't panic.

SCE&G will be conducting two separate tests of the siren warning system.

The first will occur at noon along the Lower Saluda River, for three minutes. It's part of the Lake Murray Dam Emergency Action Plan.

An hour later, more than 100 sirens within a 10-mile radius of VC Summer Nuclear Station in Fairfield County will sound.
