Tsunami hazard signs unveiled at Tel Aviv beach
Early-morning false alarm causes panic in Tel Aviv areaResidents of central Israel woke up in panic and confusion after a code red siren, usually used to alert before rocket landings, was sounded by mistake.
Residents of the Gush Dan area, which includes Tel Aviv and other cities in Israel's center, heard a code red siren early Thursday morning. A few minutes later, the IDF announced it was a false alarm.
The siren went off around 3 a.m. and caused stress and panic among many Israelis. "I woke up in fear and I didn't know what was going on," said a resident of Tel Aviv. "I checked online to see if anything had happened, and then I got text messages from friends who also heard it."
A resident of the nearby Ramat Gan said, "After the reports of the strike in Syria, it was very frightening to hear a siren in the middle of the night. But we realized fairly quickly that nothing had really happened."
