Today is the day for the national Emercency Broadcasting Alert System Test. It will be 3 minutes long, so mute your tv when it starts, so you won't hear the 3 minute long BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP. :-)  I don't think anyone gave a time for this, so it could be anytime. I don't think i missed it, but I haven't had my tv on for a long time today.

We have weekly tests, here in SC, too, but they only last about a minute at the most. This is three minutes.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency is testing the Emergency Alert System at 2 p.m. Eastern today. The EAS is the successor to the old Emergency Broadcast System. For those who remember the old EBS tests, this will be similar, though it will involve TV and radio stations at the same time -- cell phone service is not yet available.
