Hearing a siren does not mean to evacuate in an emergency, according to Duke.
They say the sirens are sounded as a signal for residents to tune to a local radio or TV station that would carry an emergency alerting message.
For more information about the public alert notification sirens, you can refer to the information available on Duke Energy’s emergency preparedness page.
