USA: Emergency Alert System Test on Wednesday
THIS IS A TEST!
Wednesday, November 9 at 2:00 PM EST, for approximately 30 seconds, all radio and TV in the USA will be interrupted by a message that simply says “This Is A Test”.
This type of test has been run regionally and locally in the past, but this is the first time they have tested it nationally. If the Emergency Alert is ever required to run at a national level, it can only be authorized by the president.
