USA Sms terror and National Disasters Alerts

The federal government is thinking of using text-messaging to warn Americans of impending natural disasters or terrorist attacks.

Next year, the Federal Emergency Management Agency will launch a pilot study to use reverse 911 technology to provide specific, targeted weather alerts or other warnings to individuals on a voluntary, opt-in basis. This sounds like a great way to keep the populace informed without being overly intrusive.
