Locals along the New Jersey shore might have been in for a fright when residents received an alert that a tsunami was headed their way.

The National Tsunami Warning Center sent a test alert message out on Monday, but the Harvey Cedars Police Department retransmitted the message out via their local alert system.

“Tsunami Warning until 2:06PM,” the department tweeted at 1:28 p.m. with a link to the alert from the center, which clearly stated the message was “for test purposes only.”

Minutes later, police tweeted: “DISREGARD!!”

Officials apologized in another tweet, and said the National Weather Service’s station in Mount Holly was testing their system and “it worked.”

“According to @NWS_MountHolly they were testing their system. We apologize for the scare and are working on a solution to prevent this from happening again,” Chief Robert Burnaford said.

The U.S. Geological Survey says a magnitude 5.3 earthquake hit the west side of the Big Island of Hawaii.

The agency says the quake hit about 5 p.m. and had an epicenter about 15 miles (24 kilometers) southwest of Kailua-Kona, a city of about 12,000 people on the island’s west coast. The earthquake had a depth of about 10 miles (16 kilometers).

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center of the National Weather service says there is no danger of a tsunami.

The center says parts of the island may have experienced strong shaking. The Geological Survey says it has received 894 responses from people saying they had felt the earthquake.
