Civil Defense Emergency alert – iPhone

Got an iPhone? Live in NZ? Did you get an emergency alert at approx 1.30 am this morning? Here’s what that was all about –

If this is what you got, here’s why. Civil Defense in NZ has a European based provider that was conducting testing to launch a new alert system by the end of the year. Seems this was supposed to have been conducted in a lab environment but has gone NZ wide.

Civil Defense has apologized for the inconvenience.

  1. FOMO has finally come to fruition for me and the man, neither of us received it, not even a text 😦
    Mind you, from what I understand not everyone did.
    It’s weird really that an app maybe needed to receive emergency life saving alerts.
