AUSTIN (KXAN) - The University of Texas is pointing out a flaw in its emergency text alert system.
On Friday, an alert was sent out regarding a man carrying a rifle and wearing a gas mask who was sighted on the west side of the campus, on Guadalupe Street.
In an earlier incident in September, UT was evacuated after a caller claimed to have placed bombs all over the campus.
Both of these threats turned out to be hoaxes, but on Tuesday, UT Police Department said some students didn't receive the messages. Officials discovered that the problem arose when parents also signed up for the alerts -- and the system essentially knocked the students' cellphone numbers out of the alert system.
