The community alert system, designed to notify residents in case of an emergency at the San Onofre nuclear power plant, will be tested Wednesday, officials said.

The 49 sirens in a 10-mile-radius evacuation zone around the plant will be sounded twice for three to five minutes between 10 a.m. and noon.

The sirens, required by federal law, are tested annually.
