Oops, Sorry

Emergency Broadcast Test Mistakenly Calls For State Evacuation:
Despite what residents may have seen on television, the state of Connecticut was not ordered evacuated on Tuesday. State emergency management officials believe someone pressed the wrong button, and instead of running a test of the emergency alert system, midday television viewers and radio listeners were told that the state was being evacuated. 'There is absolutely no evacuation or state emergency,' said Kerry Flaherty, of the Office of Emergency Management. 'It was an erroneous message.' The department is investigating how the alert was sent.
