For the second night in a row, a malfunctioning emergency siren system has sounded in the Camp Smith area at Halawa, prompting residents to complain to the Honolulu Department of Emergency Management.
Department spokesman John Cummings said he received a call a little after 8:35 p.m. Tuesday about the sirens.
Cummings said he was told a contractor was on the way to shut off the siren system.
The siren system is at the Marine Corps Base at Camp Smith, where a malfunctioning siren system sounded at about midnight Monday.
Cummings said the sirens at 120 decibels can be heard three to five miles.
He said he didn’t know what was causing the problem.
A Department of Emergency Management alert tonight said there was a “runaway siren” in the Camp Smith area and no emergency.
