Just to try to squeeze something worthwhile out of these reports...

I wonder, if there were a real alert, what the odds are that one
wouldn't hear about it in 1 minute, 5 minutes, etc even if they didn't
personally get it.

Obviously edge cases are possible, you were deep in a cave with your
soccer team, but there must be mathematical modeling of that sort of
information dispersion.

It would have to account for other possible channels, word of mouth,
facebook, twitter, &c posts or really any informatonal source you were
on on the internet (e.g., news sites), TV, radio, people screaming in
the streets, etc.
