False alarm sounds off at Juneau’s Salmon Creek dam

An audible siren went off Friday at the Salmon Creek dam, but local authorities say it was a false alarm.

The Alaska Electric Light and Power Co. has stated on social media that the siren was a false alarm.

The Juneau utility company says crews are responding, and there’s no need to evacuate the area.
