Port Washington residents be aware — the city’s emergency sirens will sound at 1:45 p.m. Thursday, April 20, and again at 6:45 p.m.

But it’s not a weather emergency. It’s all part of a mock tornado scenario being held statewide during Tornado and Severe Weather Awareness Week, according to the Port Washington Police Department.

As part of the week’s observances, a mock tornado watch will be issued at 1 p.m. Thursday, followed by a tornado warning at 1:45 p.m.

A second tornado warning and siren sounding will be held at 6:45 p.m. to allow families and second-shift workers a chance to practice their emergency plans.
