A siren went off on one of the towers at the San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant Tuesday but turned out to be a false alarm, authorities said.

The siren went off around 4:45 a.m. and generated easily more than 50 calls from concerned residents, said Sgt. S. Baker of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

“We got a whole bunch of calls,” Baker said. “Not sure how many, but it was a parcel. A whole bunch.”

The plant is on the coast in San Diego County about three miles from San Clemente and the Orange County line. The plant also borders the Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base.

The siren was shut off almost immediately and determined to be a false alarm, Baker said.

“We’re not sure what made the siren go off or why it went off,” Baker said.

Technicians at the plant were looking into the problem this morning, Baker said.
