FEMA Conducting Nationwide Alert Test Today

Don't be alarmed if you get an emergency alert on your phone this afternoon - it's only a test.

FEMA will be conducting a nationwide test of its emergency alert system today, sending messages to radio, TV, and cell phones.

That means your phone might receive a message reading "THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.”

The test is scheduled to be conducted at 2:20pm EST.
