The National Weather Service accidentally triggered a tsunami warning alert across Oregon this morning.

The Oregon Emergency Management office says the National Weather
Service was conducting an internal test when it was accidentally sent out on radio stations statewide.

Lane County Emergency Management and police departments in Florence and Newport say they were swamped with calls from concerned residents.

The National Weather Service apologized for the mix-up.
