    A false alarm that went out to some people’s television sets Tuesday might have scared some in New Jersey.

    A nuclear power plant warning issued in Cumberland and Salem counties was sent out by mistake.

    The message that was sent out said “a civil authority has issued a nuclear power plant warning for the following counties/areas.”

    A short time later, the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management tweeted that the emergency alert was “false.”

    It said that message went out in error.
