Looks like the MCANS system still needs some work.

I got an alert this afternoon at 15:51 that the severe weather watch was ending. 

The only problem is that I hadn't ever received one from MCANS stating that one had even been issued.  Fortunately, we had the scanner on so we were aware of the alert but we didn't get it from MCANS :( :( :(

Did anyone get one saying there was an alert ??? ??? ???

I received both.

Maybe we should poll what cell phone service we have?

Only got the ending one.  Similarly to BRD I only knew about it from the scanner before the sirens went off.

I have Verizon but I didn't sign up to get texts from MCANS but rather to get them by email. 

I only have one device that gets texts but I have 6 or 7 that get emails.

CL and I both have Boost Mobile which is a sub of Sprint. We have one of those 'electronic sirens' in line with us about a mile south.  It's irritating.

I only got the all clear one... 

Still amazed they can't program those things to say a few basic things -
but they can say  "this is a test"     Not sure what person thought we'd never figure out Wed at 10 would be a test - yet not bother for the real ones!

Waiting for some drunk to clean the one off on Deerfield Road.  It sticks out like a sore thumb, just asking to get Teed off...

It's mounted on a wooden pole near the berm, a prime spot for some drunk to hit...
