New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio joked that the National Weather Service’s false tsunami warning issued Tuesday morning was “better” than the false nuclear attack warning that Hawaii residents received in January.

A reporter asked de Blasio for his thoughts about the false AccuWeather alert that was sent out in coordination with the National Weather Service to some New York City residents regarding a possible tsunami.

“Better than a warning of a nuclear attack,” de Blasio joked during the press conference. “Thank you, AccuWeather for not going that far.”

In January, the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency mistakenly sent out an alert to residents and visitors across the state about an incoming nuclear attack, which caused widespread panic across Hawaii.

De Blasio wouldn’t comment on the false tsunami warning, saying he needed more details before he could comment on the subject.
