At 12:02pm, about 5 minutes ago, there was a an Emergency Broadcast System alert.
I found it extremely odd because usually it is done locally. What I mean is there is a message that rolls across the screen that reads something like
"This is a required weekly test for the following counties.." and usually its just for the county you live in or maybe for the state you live in.
Like I said before, at 12:02 there was an Emergency Broadcast System alert, but the message read..."This is a required monthly test for the following
counties, The United States." I found that extremely odd. I have never seen one that said "The United States." Ususally when the alert is
activated it is for weather related and mostly local events. Why the United States as a whole?
In my opinion, the only reason to have a nation wide alert would be incase of war...thats what it was designed for in the first place. Could things
be getting worse with Russia? I just heard that NATO froze their relations with Russia. Recent threats of attacks on Poland, could we be closer than
we know to conflict with Russia?
Well, I got a little sidetracked there, did anyone else see the alert for the following counties...The United States? I tried to get it on tape but it
was over before I found my camera and get back to the TV. Anyone else see it?
