The text message will be sent to phones within a half hour period, beginning at 2.18pm EDT, with the TV and radio messages broadcast two minutes later, at 2.20pm [7.20pm BST]. According to FEMA, the body of the text will let people know that it's only a test and no action is needed.

It was meant to be tested on 20 September, but this was postponed because of Hurricane Florence.

Phones with mobile carriers that participate in the wireless emergency alert system, which sends out information on hazardous weather, or missing children, will get the alert.

Some cellphone users received a message with a header that reads "Presidential Alert".

The judge said she believes the litigants want to ensure President Donald Trump doesn't turn the alert system into a second Twitter feed. "No action is required". It will also make a test Wednesday of the Emergency Alert System (EAS), which involves radio and television systems and their audiences. Some people reported not getting the alerts or getting them on a delayed basis.
