Verizon Wireless accidentally sent an emergency alert via SMS to subscribers in several counties in New Jersey. Customers were urged to take shelter and flooded local police stations with phone calls. Verzon said the message was sent in error. "Around noon [on Monday] a test emergency notification text message was sent to customers in Middlesex, Monmouth, and Ocean Counties in New Jersey,’" said Verizon in a statement. "This test message was not clearly identified as a test. We apologize for any inconvenience or concern this message may have caused."
