I went over to my mothers house saturday night because she called me up and was pretty nervous and freaked. So I went over, and she told me in detaIL
what had happened.
The warning, first off, or incomplete warning, went off several times. I only know of three times, but she told me it went off a few times. It had
freaked her out at first because she did not see "this is a test" or anything. She kept flipping to local channels, but there was nothing. It came
on several times.
Then around 9 a.m., the power went off for like 10 seconds. Her friend who owns the house was on the phone with family, when it emitted a loud, ear
piericing sound, so loud she threw it acvross the room. The power came on ten seconds later. No high winds or anything.
Then when the tv turned back on, they flipped through local channels, nothing. but then the emergency messAge came back on. This time, it said "A
civil authority has issued a weekly test". It did that a few more times with the test part in it.
It went on until I got there, around 10 P.M., it sent off anothertest while i was there visiting with her. I dunno iof anymore happened that night.
I thought id give you an update, though. I had not gotten a chance to get the whole story when i was on the phone with her, and thus, could not post
the whole thing. But I figured since she told me the rest, Id share it on here.
So, to sum it up, the next day, they were scrolling the emergency message with the test part in it. But the night before, they had scrolled it several
times and nothing. I dunno. Pretty strange.
Could be a number of things. For now, all is quiet. Hopefully, it will stay that way.
