Cellphone Emergency Alert System Test

I was caught off guard, as I knew nothing about this test. I think it is a great idea that natural and man made disasters can be reported to the nation quickly. Like Terror Attacks, earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, big storms. However since only the president can issue this I hope there are some checks and balances! Or we just might get messages like. "The democrats are witch hunting me."
