NWS Issues False Tsunami Warning Alert for East Coast

The National Weather Service accidentally issued a fake tsunami warning alert from the Gulf Coast to the East Coast.

The warning went out on some weather apps just before 8:30 a.m. Eastern, and was reported in areas from New Orleans and Houston to Palm Beach, Florida to Maine.

The alert said a tsunami warning was in effect.

About 20 minutes later, Accuweather tweeted that the push notification was just a test.

The National Weather Service is also tweeting, saying there never was a threat of a tsunami.

The post NWS Issues False Tsunami Warning Alert for East Coast appeared first on 850 WFTL.
