On Thursday afternoon California residents were startled when they were watching TV when a creepy message interrupted the Emergency Alert System.

Some California residents began calling the police and their cable providers after an Emergency Alert System flashed on their TV screens followed by a message about the end of times and that the world would in fact end on Saturday, September 23, 2017 after a new planet would crash into our Earth.

Obviously, the world has not ended but that hasn’t stopped some people from preaching that the world is indeed coming to an end.

As far as what happened with the Emergency Alert System and the message that bled through, no one has answers at this time. The cable service is investigating and authorities also believe a hacker was involved.
