A Tsunami warning for the Connecticut and New York coast that was issued Tuesday morning by the National Weather Service turned out to be an error.

We saw what happened in Hawaii recently when a false missile alert was issued, now the National Weather Service is saying that a Tsunami warning that was issued Tuesday morning for residents of Connecticut and New York was actually just supposed to be a test.

According to patch.com, the text message was sent out shortly after 8:30 am warning of a possible Tsunami and causing concern from those subscribers that received it.



The National Weather Service did issue a statement regarding the error:

"We are currently trying to find out how a message went out as a warning. We will update you when we find out more."
