False tornado warning issued to some Securetek users

Funnel cloud advisories were in place for some places in Saskatchewan on Saturday, but an unknown amount of SaskTel Securetek customers got a message saying something much worse was happening.

Some got a message saying there was a tornado warning which was false.

SaskTel says a third-party company is responsible for the message getting through. That third-party, alarm.com, is used by SaskTel and other security providers in the province.

They are apologizing for the inconvenience they put customers through and say they will be following up on the matter.
