Ontario, Canada resident had a rude awakening early Sunday when an emergency messages was sent to their phones, laptops, and desktop computers, warning of an “incident” at a massive nuclear plant east of Toronto.
About an hour later, the government of the province sent another message, saying that the alert had been a false alarm.
“There is NO active nuclear situation taking place at the Pickering Nuclear Generating Station,” the Ontario Power Generation company said. “The previous alert was issued in error. There is no danger to the public or environment.”
