A false alarm that went out to some people’s television sets Tuesday might have scared some in New Jersey.
A nuclear power plant warning issued in Cumberland and Salem counties was sent out by mistake.
The message that was sent out said “a civil authority has issued a nuclear power plant warning for the following counties/areas.”
A short time later, the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management Tweeted that the emergency alert was “false.”
It said that message went out in error.
