The Rock County Outdoor Warning System will conduct its monthly siren tests at 12:05 p.m. today.

The test signal will be one to two minutes long. An actual tornado warning siren tone would last three to five minutes.

A tornado warning means residents should immediately take shelter and tune in to local broadcast stations or weather radios for information. Residents should not call 911 or local radio stations for weather information.

Residents who notice the siren in their area is not working should call the Rock County Sheriff's Office Emergency Management Bureau at 608-758-8440.

In the event there is a chance of inclement weather, siren testing will be postponed until 12:05 p.m. Wednesday, July 9.
