In the US they have a system called Emergency and Amber Alert. The system, linked to official governing institutions, pushes notifications on child kidnappings and emergencies to every phone number in the US. The alert come up as a prompt on your phone, bypassing whatever you were doing, making a very loud siren like sound that's supposed to wake you up in the middle of the night (BTW, it does).
So two minutes ago sirens went all around the house (our phones are connected to the speakers) and this prompt appeared on our home screens.
All hell is loose
