Residents and tourists alike remained rattled after the mistaken alert was blasted out to cellphones across the islands with a warning to seek immediate shelter and the ominous statement: "This is not a drill". We have to get rid of nuclear threat from North Korea. He said Hawaii doesn't have fallout shelters, and even if there were any, residents probably wouldn't have time to reach them. "This was purely a state exercise", Walters said.

The erroneous message came after months of soaring tensions between Washington and Pyongyang, with North Korea claiming it had successfully tested ballistic missiles that could deliver atomic warheads to the United States, including Hawaii's chain of volcanic islands.

"False alerts undermine public confidence in the alerting system and thus reduce their effectiveness during real emergencies", he said.

"She became hysterical, crying, you know, just lost it", she said.
The alert was a false alarm, the Hawaii's USA senators said on Twitter as they rushed to tamp down the hysteria that ensued.

Such mistakes in the past brought the US and the Soviet Union to the brink of unintentional nuclear war, she said.

Social media was filled with accounts from horrified Hawaiians, and a thread on social media platform Reddit revealed just how frantic people were during those 38 minutes.

Senators Kamala Harris and Dianne Feinstein, both D-Calif., wrote to Pai in October that state residents had not gotten emergency alerts to leave their homes as wildfires raged nearby because of substandard location-targeting and other technical problems.

"We kept quiet and calmed".

"Heard a knock on the door". Until all the changes are introduced, tests of the ballistic missile preparation checklist, which were performed several times a day since November 1, have been put on hold by the authorities.

"One man was in the bathtub with his daughter and family praying".

The child can be heard saying that she didn't want to go in, before she begins to descend into the dark space. It was later declared as a false alarm that was sent out accidentally. "We have to achieve peace, not play politics, because this is literally life and death that is at stake for the people of Hawaii and the people of this country", Gabbard told CNN. He added that the warning was sent to mobile phones, and also appeared on TV and radio.

Many have been stunned by how unprepared they were.

Actor Jim Carrey tweeted that he woke up to the alert in Hawaii.

"We've spent the last few months trying to get ahead of this whole threat, so that we could provide as much notification and preparation to the public", he said, pledging to investigate what happened "so that this doesn't happen again".

The US leader recently said he would be willing to speak directly with Kim, with whom he has traded sharp words over Pyongyang's missile and nuclear tests, raising fears of attacks.

"You know, I know firsthand that what happened today was totally unacceptable. And many in our community was deeply affected by this and I'm sorry for that pain and confusion that anyone might have experienced".

Vern Miyagi, administrator of the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency, left, and Gov. David Ige address the media Saturday following the false alarm of a missile launch.

"We had to initiate a manual process".
