Traffic could become badly backed up in the path.   Lots of out of towners driving in.   If it happens to be cloudy, there will be extremely heavy traffic moving to find clear sky.   Maybe this would trigger alerts.

I hope not.  We are in the path or close to it and I haven't heard anything.  Our "services" people are all geared up and have a MAC center opening at noon.  Some gas stations out of gas but more tankers on the way.

Local authorities should activate the EAS next Monday for the appropriate listening areas along the solar eclipse path.  Pick one or more!
