Folks along the Gulf Coast and East Coast got a tsunami alert this morning.

The National Weather Service is reassuring people after a tsunami warning alert was mistakenly issued 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.
