NWS: Tornado Warning Just a Test

By Associated Press. CREATED Mar 4, 2013

SULLIVAN, Wis. (AP) -- The National Weather Service says a tornado warning issued Monday was meant to be a test.

The warning alert for the southeastern and south-central part of the state was inadvertently sent to smart-phone users and broadcasters about 10:30 a.m.

The weather service says a coding problem sent the message to digital vendor services as a real warning, when in fact it was meant to be a test.
