DELTA, Pa. (AP) — Officials said there’s no emergency at a central Pennsylvania nuclear power plant after sirens briefly sounded there.

The sirens went off Tuesday morning at the Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station on the Susquehanna River.

The York County Office of Emergency Management said there is no cause for alarm and no emergency at the plant.

Power plant spokeswoman Lacey Dean says the facility has 97 sirens but only a few of them sounded.

She said officials are looking into what might have tripped the sirens.

The two-unit nuclear plant is located about 50 miles south of Harrisburg, near the Maryland border.
