Why does Turbo Tax think my 401K pay is for a disaster?

When I entered my RMD amount from a TDSP, turbo tax is asking me for the type of disaster when I clearly clicked the box which says this withdrawal was NOT for a disaster.

Why does Turbo Tax think my 401K pay is for a disaster?

TurboTax is aware of this issue and is currently working on a solution.

As a workaround, you can answer "no" to the question "Was this a Qualified Disaster Distribution?"  and when asked "What type of disaster affected you in 2017?" leave the selection blank and hit continue.  This will not affect any calculations and you will be able to E-file.
