Following the unauthorized intrusion, city authorities had to shut down their emergency warning system a day before major storms and potential tornados were set to hit the area.

According to CBS Dallas, DeSoto and Lancaster officials who investigated the incident confirmed the two emergency alarm systems had been hacked and set off "intentionally," excluding the possibility of a freak technical accident in the two cities at the same time.

It quickly gets obvious when someone found a way to mess with sirens.
