NOAA Weather Radio Testing of Non-Weather Emergency Messages at 1:15 pm CST Today

A test of the system to distribuate emergency messages of national significance will be conducted Tuesday November 18 around 115 pm CST. The test will use the administrative message/followup message headings WOUS43 KABR/FSDADRSD for South Dakota, WOUS43 KMPX/MSPADRMN for Minnesota, WOUS43 KOAX/OMAADRNE for Nebraska, and WOUS43 KDMX/DSMADRIA for Iowa.  The ADR message may be relayed by local media through the emergency alert system and may trigger SAME-equipped NOAA weather radio receivers.
