911 operators have been busy responding to all these weather emergencies.

Most of you probably would just pick up the phone and call 911 but one day you’ll also be able to text during a crisis.

It has happened before.  The government says during the shootings at Virginia, students and staff sent texts to 911 trying to get help but those texts were never received because the local 911 center like most around the country can only handle basic phone calls.
