NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) — People in the area of Jefferson Lab on Friday may hear a strange noise.
The Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility will conduct its monthly test of a tornado warning siren at 10:30 a.m. The test could last up to three minutes.
The facility says anyone within a 1.5-mile radius of the lab may be able to hear the siren.
The siren is used to alert people across the campus to take cover in the event of a tornado.
