Coffey County: Disregard Wolf Creek Nuclear Power Plant alert

By  | 

TOPEKA (WIBW)--- If you saw an alert Tuesday about an emergency at Wolf Creek Nuclear Power Plant, it was only a test.

An emergency alert read "A civil authority has issued a nuclear power plant warning" for Coffey County.

Coffey County Emergency Management says it was conducting its required weekly test of the emergency alert system.

They say an incorrect warning code was chosen, and the test went live on some TV and radio stations.

Emergency management says there is no emergency in Coffey County, if you saw the message, ignore it.
