suddenly it should go fast: Federal interior Minister of Horst Seehofer have "in principle already decided that the warning comes by cellbroadcasting," revealed the President of the Federal Office for Population Protection, Armin Schuster, on Thursday in the Ard- "Morgenmagazin".

in Germany lacked these siren. And so died alone in the Rhineland-Palatinate Ahrtal 128 people because village streams swelled. Sighing German governors refer to climate change and speak agently from a "human catastrophe". Human disaster is indeed, but in a lot of a banter manner.
