ST. CLOUD - Don't be alarmed if you hear the outdoor warning sirens in St. Cloud Friday (7/7).

The city will be testing the sirens as they finish maintenance repairs on about nine of them. In order ensure that they are working properly, they have to be sounded.

Each siren test will last for three minutes.
