Developers' timezone fail woke half of New Zealand


Re: Aukward moment

"Let me dissent. The NZ authorities did not say that the timing of the test message was a mistake. The time zones excuse was hearsay."

Director of the Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management Sarah Stuart-Black told Newstalk ZB the test text messages were sent to the public "in error" for which she apologised.

"A set of three text messages were sent to the public in error when they were supposed to be restricted to a contained testing environment and the result has been that many New Zealanders were woken from their sleep at 1.30am and would have received up to three messages.

"It is completely unacceptable and I take full responsibility and certainly apologise to every person that was woken by the messages."
