    Did you get a radiological emergency alert on your phone? Here's what happened

ATLANTA - Your phone may have buzzed and sounded the alarm this morning about a radiological emergency in Georgia. 

Our phones in the Channel 2 Action News newsroom buzzed about the alert too. 

An alert popped up on the phone as: "EAS Radiological Hazard Warning THIS IS A TEST."

As soon as the alert was sent around 8 a.m., our phones were ringing off the hook with viewers asking what happened. We also received questions about it on social media.

The Georgia Department of Emergency Management tweeted that this was indeed a test of their system and that there is no radiological emergency. 

We're learning more about the alert from GEMA officials, on Channel 2 Action News at Noon
