Cleared to deviate for WX by ZDC ARTCC. At approximately 40 DME ssw sby VOR, center called and stated, 'you are now in a warning area, squawk 7700.' I advised controller that I was not declaring emergency, and he said he was! One min later, a flight behind was advised the same way. At no time previous were any crews advised of a possible conflict.
