Tsunami False Alarm

1906

If you received a tsunami warning on your mobile device thisĀ  (Tuesday) morning, don’t panic: It was only a test.

A tsunami warning test message was issued by the National Weather Service Tuesday morning to several major cities in the U.S, including Houston, Tampa, and New York as well as areas up and down the US East Coast.

The alert appeared as a notification that read as a tsunami warning, but failed to indicate it was a test unless it was opened, leaving people confused.
