According to both USA Today and CNN, the FCC is working on a new nationwide text message alert system and is expected to make an announcement shortly.

It’s believed that the alerts will initially be limited to 90 words or less and be in English only and will warn people about things like terror attacks, major weather developments and Amber alerts.

Participation in the program is expected to be voluntary on the part of wireless carriers.
