The Nebraska Public Power District says an alert system problem caused sirens to sound near the district’s nuclear power plant near Brownville.

The sirens went off just after 8am Tuesday morning at Cooper Nuclear Station. The district said in a news release there was no problem. The false alarm is being investigated.

District spokesman, Mark Becker, says the incident is being reported to federal regulators as well.
