MONTGOMERY CO., AL (WSFA) - The Montgomery City/County Emergency Management Agency says it will perform a live test of its weather sirens Wednesday.

The EMA says it understands "many people's nerves are frayed due to the recent devastating tornadoes," but has decided it will continue to perform the tests. There is no severe weather expected Wednesday.

"We feel it is important to carry on with the test to ensure our sirens function properly since we are still in the midst of the spring tornado season and they may be needed at any time," the EMA said. "We are also aware that many people from Elmore and Autauga Counties work in Montgomery. We understand they may be especially concerned upon hearing the sirens since their counties have recently had tornado related damage and fatalities."

Sirens will go off at 3:30 p.m. in Montgomery County as part of the normal monthly test.
