Millions of cellphones, tablets and other portable devices will sound off across the province today, in the first test of Canada’s new alert system that warns people of imminent threats, things like tornadoes, floods and fires, as well as water contamination’s and Amber alerts.

 

The tests will be carried out in Manitoba at 1:55pm! 

 

Depending on the service provider, the alerts could make a distinctive noise or simply buzz a device.
