Americans will receive a Emergency SMS from the Government

United States' Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has just approved a plan for creating a nationwide emergency alert system that would send out text messages in a crisis, such as severe weather, a terrorist threat or child abduction.
The Government will send the alert to the carriers, but they will not be forced to send the message to the users. The top four carriers — AT&T, Verizon, Sprint Nextel and T-Mobile — are interested in participating.
