Unusual alarm spooks Norway – “war with Russia has begun”

0 903

In Norway’s city of Vadso, near the border with Russia, a siren has gone off that wasn’t heard before. Some residents decided that the “offensive of the eastern neighbor” had begun. According to the Norwegian television and radio company NRK, the alarm sounded at 23:50 (01:50 in Moscow).

As at time of writing, the reason for the siren has not been explained. “Some, of course, felt that the worst happened – the big war,” – said the head of the local police, Jan-Olaf Shelberg. The police took several phone calls from alarmed residents.

In August last year, two radio stations on the island of Guam in the Pacific Ocean signalled an emergency notification, warning citizens of danger. On January 13 of this year, residents of Hawaii received a warning about a ballistic missile flying toward this American state. The text stated that what was happening was not a drill.
