Freeway message-board mistake gives tsunami false alarm

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A system glitch on one of the H-1 freeway's electronic message boards caused a scare for commuters on Tuesday when it read that a tsunami warning was in effect.

Motorists say the sign, located near the Ka'amilo Overpass, asked drivers to turn on their radios to listen for emergency messages.

There was no tsunami warning, and no emergency messages were being broadcast.

The Department of Transportation says it is looking into the cause of the incident.
