    I have Hannity on the radio and an EAS (emergency alert system) message breaks in.

    I was expecting the usual "This is a test"...

    Instead it said "The civil authorities have ordered an immediate evacuation from --------- at 4:07 PM".

    I couldn't make out the word after "from". They didn't repeat it...the message only played once.

    It's kind of wiggin' me out!

    That’s weird. The message usually repeats several times.

    I know. And the word I couldn't make out sounded like it might be a name of a business...I didn't recognize it as a town or a city.

    Sacramento tested their EAS Warning System this morning...

    Sacramento To Test Emergency Notification System Thursday

    I found nothing on the EAS, FEMA, or NOAA sites for your location.

    Probably just a bunch of Somalians running amok.

    May be it was just an accident, a mistake. Nothing important.
