CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Gov. John Lynch has signed a law that would allow the state to send New Hampshire residents automated phone messages about pending emergencies.

The messages will warn about emergencies such as ice storms, tornado warnings or floods through automated phone calls.

New Hampshire already has a database of landlines. Cell phone and Internet service phone users can opt into the system. Communities that already have their own emergency notification systems are encouraged to use the state system when it is up and running.

The state system will be able to place calls to people statewide or focus on a specific part of the state.

Lynch signed the law Wednesday.
