Accidental Emergency Alert


If you heard that cringing sound this morning, don't worry, you weren't alone. Officials say FEMA installed a new satellite warning system yesterday and conducted tests today.

The problem, the alerts were supposed to go out internally but went out to broadcasting systems instead, including the local radio station, WROK.

Right now, the Federal Communication Commission's investigating the alerts.
