Hawaii Says No Missile Threat After Emergency Alert Mistakenly Sent

Sent to mobile phones and aired on television and radio shortly after 8 a.m local time on Saturday, it was issued amid high global tensions over North Korea's development of ballistic nuclear weapons.

"It was early morning and [I] was awakened by a text actually, an emergency text, that said, 'ballistic missile inbound Hawaii. Seek immediate shelter. This is not a drill", said Williams.

But 38 minutes later, US officials sent another message saying that the text was a false alarm. The people of Hawaii have been on edge in recent months as North Korea's Kim Jong-un may be closer to perfecting a nuclear missile. We ran out into the streets trying to find shelter and saw a few people sprinting toward the mall.

Ige said on Sunday that the government would investigate the incident, which involved an employee pushing a wrong button during a shift change on Saturday morning.

Hawaii US Senator Brian Schatz tweeted the false alarm was "totally inexcusable" and was caused by human error.

A women-only entry in the popular SNK fighting game universe? These two games will be available on Switch in February 2018. This version of the game will take all the content from both the Wii U and 3DS versions of the game and bring it together.

Local 4 News spoke with several local people who are in Hawaii and received the message. "There is absolutely no ballistic missile threat to Hawaii right now", he said. "State of Hawaii will send out a correction message as soon as possible", Benham said.

"Hawaii - this is a false alarm", Democrat Tulsi Gabbard said on Twitter.

After the false alarm, Hawaiian lawmakers tweeted about the event, noting the seriousness of it, and explaining how a false alarm of this nature is unacceptable-especially in a time of heightened tensions between the USA and North Korea.

Miyagi said Saturday that if the alert is sent in the "actual event", there will be 12-14 minutes before the impact.

In a conciliatory news conference, Ige promised to evaluate the testing system to ensure such a mistake would never happen again. "One person actually sought shelter in a doorway waiting for some other notification, so it definitely looked like everybody received the alert".
