Phone glitch caused fake tornado alarm in Kansas residents

Here’s a rare example of “Boy who cries wolf”, but in a much bigger scale, and much more modernized. What is supposed to be a very ‘top secret’ number, only contactable from three specific phones, was messed up by a simple “software glitch” at AT&T, that caused little Hutchinson of Kansas to go berserk. Due to the “glitch”, a random number accidentally called the wrong number caused by misdialled from a local, which triggered the emergency line to activate a citywide tornado alarm. Well, all hell goes loss. Thankfully, nobody’s injured, and the system’s being restored. But nobody knows who the boy is.
