Wide-reaching EAS Test Hits Some Potholes
#1
Today’s alerting test went off at 2:20 pm Eastern but hit a more than a few potholes along the way.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency conducted an IPAWS/EAS test that was to cover a sizable part of the nation: 22 states, two territories and the District of Columbia.

But there were hiccups in the process, and six states were dropped from the test with little to no warning to participants due to concerns about real weather activity.
