NOAA WEATHER RADIO ROUTINE WEEKLY TEST POSTPONED UNTIL THURSDAY

406 PM HST Tue Oct 2 2018


The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in coordination
and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), will conduct a

Emergency Alert System (EAS) on Wednesday, October 3, 2018. The
WEA test will begin at 818 AM HST and the EAS test will follow

To prevent stations from receiving multiple EAS tests in one day,
the National Weather Service will postpone the NOAA Weather Radio
Routine Weekly Test. This test is normally conducted each
Wednesday, except when postponed until the next available day. In
this case, the test will be conducted on Thursday, October 4,
2018, between 11 am and noon.
