MANASQUAN – Severe weather was expected in Manasquan on Tuesday, and perhaps later in the week. But not a tsunami.
An alerting siren malfunctioned this morning at approximately 8:15 a.m., falsely indicating a tsunami alert.
There is no such weather warning in effect for Manasquan, officials said.
The borough will investigate the cause of the false alert to avoid future false alerts.
