Heads up, Mid day today you will likely receive an alert on your phones.

https://www.fema.gov/news-release/2018/10/02/nationwide-emergency-alert-test-planned-oct-3-test-messages-will-be-sent

The WEA test message will appear on consumers’ phones and read, “THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.” Phones will display this national test using the header “Presidential Alert.” These nationwide alerts, established pursuant to the WARN Act of 2006, are meant for use in a national emergency and are the only type of alert that can be sent simultaneously nationwide by FEMA.

Thanks for the heads up.

Did hear something about this, but, was not entirely sure on the date.

I await the first "PRESIDENTIAL ALERT" text where it's just him saying he's going to a rally somewhere. It'll be YUUUGGGGGEEE! :bowrofl:

Ya, I got nothing. I know this isn't a call, but maybe that Do Not Call registry finally worked. Only our government abides by it. :D

Seriously, I thought I had seen elsewhere that it was around noon our time. But honestly, I also wasn't factoring in time zone things either.

OK, I will write this slowly.

The. event. is. happening. at. 1:18 Chicago. Time.

Besides that, there is a half hour window for when you will receive the alert.
