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.
