Why did I receive two text messages?

Emergency services can send warning messages to mobile telephones based on location of handsets and registered service addresses within a geographical area affected by an emergency.

You may receive two warning messages to your mobile telephone if your mobile telephone has a registered service address within the warning area and your mobile telephone was active within the warning area at the time of the emergency.
