WHAT WAS THAT? - Emergency broadcast system test named a shitload of heartland states THEN said "this is a test"
I cant find a thread about it and you guys are going to think I'm full of shit but..
I couldn't post right after it happened, but at about 10:30 this morning I was driving North on I35 through Austin when the local station I was listening to did an Emergency broadcast system test. A fucking weird one...
It did the beep beep beep thing and said there is an emergency alert for a shitload of heartland states. It caught me so off gaurd, I was listening for Texas (of course) but I remember Texas,Kansas,Oklahoma,Tennessee, Illinois, North and South Dakota, Nebraska, and others I cant remember. But all heartland states.
"All" of the states listed, not parts of each state is what it said.
DID ANYONE ELSE HEAR THIS?
I figured by now there would be a thread on this, I just got home from my trip, and.... nothing.
If this is a warning, its gotta be an EMP. That's all I can figure would strike such a large area.
Someone please tell me ya'll heard this so I know I'm not going insane.

Do you think you heard Kentucky along with hearing Tennessee.

Did it seem like the alert primarily only mentioned states that are in the heartland, but are also located west of the Mississippi River.

Yellowstone or the New Madrid Seismic Zone could be waking up.

TPTB just doing a systems check for when the false flag nuclear events happen shoon.

Just like the one in Pickering/Toronto Ontario yesterday.

TPTB have established disruption events across North America that will be blamed on Iranians.
They are testing their emergency warning systems in advance.

I think they said Kentucky, but like I said I was so shocked that its unclear.
I joked to my wife when the tone came on that "well, here come the nukes"
Then when it started with the states we both freaked. So my memory is rattled

Thanks for trying to remember, I appreciate it.

I can well understand you feeling rattled by hearing such an alert, test or no test.

Take note that Texas has its own stand-alone electrical power grid.

Other than that, there is an Eastern power grid and a Western power grid that only recently we are being told are co-dependent; one goes down, they both go down.

I believe Alaska and Hawaii each have their own power grids.

However, Alaska's power grid could be linked in with that of Canada or the US Western power grid.

Thanks,I really am thinking I'm crazy tho, nobody in my hometown heard it.
I feel like I should remember the station ID, but I cant.it wasn't a present, and I changed it a little later.

I think this is important somehow, but like I said, maybe I'm crazy

Hmm. I'm in Oklahoma and I can say this much about it, we had one on the local channels here that I thought was odd because they usually come on in the mornings when they test their monthly.

This on was about an hour and a half ago or so. I unfortunately didn't pay it any mind outside of thinking it was strange to have one so late so I can't comment on anything else.

Another oddity though that's been happening for a couple months now is that they've changed the ticker color from red to green, and instead of a required test of the emergency alert system it says a civil defense authority has issued a required test.

Make of it what you will.

Thank you!
I didnt notice if it said civil defense, I was teasing the wife about nukes coming when it began, and quickly shut up when they started listing states. So I missed the very beginning - due to being a jackass.
It broke in midway through a song, I thought that weird too because most tests are during breaks.

I dont think so, sounded like they were going in alphabetical order, and Texas was last. Keep in mind, I was listening intently FOR Texas, so the others were secondary in my mind.
The first thing i thought after it went off is, damn that's a lot of "red" states.

No worries. I'm not saying it means anything for sure but I did find the changes odd.

I thought maybe it was something that Trump had changed up but there's been to much weirdness regarding false alerts and such lately and nothing in the way of an explanation I've seen.
