Earlier this month, residents of the West Coast were warned to brace for possible tsunami after an quake off the coast of Alaska. That meant some people received what looked like an actual warning on their phones.
The error seems to have been the fault of AccuWeather, as the company's app apparently flagged the routine monthly warning as genuine, sending it out to users with notifications enabled. Even AccuWeather has said now that the warning was a test but it didn't explain why its app had pushed it out as a genuine alert earlier today.
A U.S. private forecasting company took a routine National Weather Service test message and sent it to people's phones as an official tsunami warning on Tuesday morning. The message credited the National Weather Service.
