Default Wireless Emergency Alert Test

It didn't say which time zone but I read in the paper that at 1218 today there will be a test of the Wireless Emergency Alert Test system.

Just a heads up.

One of the local TV stations in Denver mentioned the nationwide EAS system will also be tested today however at an unspecified time. This is in addition to the nationwide cellphone alert test.

Shouldn't the alert even make the alert alarm noise if the phone is in silent mode? My didn't, but it does when there is a tornado warning. hmm

Interesting that it only came through my iPhone and none of the NOAA Weather Receivers we have running like other alerts; I would have thought they would have tied these alerting systems together like Amber alerts, Radiation alerts, etc. Did anyone else's NOAA receivers go off outside of Michigan?

I got mine... text and audio tone. I guess there were a lot of folks that weren't aware of the test. My scanners are lighting up with police and fire responding to calls from citizens in 4 or 5 communities around me thinking we are under attack.
