Weird EMS Message / No Message

Today (08072019) at 1400, we received an Emergency Broadcast interruption. The weird thing is our larger flat screen TV (digital, but not a Smart TV) connected to the larger style of cable box went blank at this time deliverign no message and failed to correct itself for some time after.  Meanwhile, our smaller flat screen (also not a SmartTV) connected to a smaller style, less sophistocated cable box delivered a message for the Wasgington, DC area only.  Upon competion, the message repeated in Spanish. This TV was then restored to its regular programming without incident.  The whole experience was rather unconventional on both accounts. Are you aware of such technical glitches occuring during Emergency Broadcasts?  It can be a  matter of life and death had this been an actual local emeregncy.  I hope you will take this matter seriously, investigate, and make the necessary improvements.  I look forward your reply and a follow-up on what progress you have made.  Thanks,<Edited>
