Seriously, at 6:30am approximately. I was ripped from my slumber more confused then annoyed. Trying to figure out what it was. Not a car alarm, no modern alarm at all, but the rolling wail of sirens past. The only thing I could think of was the cold war era air raid sirens that have dotted the San Fernando Valley landscape. It rang out again at approximately 10:30am. We also remember hearing something last night at approximately 11pm. I drove down to the nearest to have a look and snap this photo. It looked just as derelict as always. No sign of hooligans. I may never have answers. According to the internet this emergency system hasn’t been used since a test in the mid 80s. Anyone else have a clue?

No power connected to these things anymore as you can see all wires have been cut, must have been something else.
