Message telling Hawaiian's to shelter from missile was 'error'

Message telling Hawaiian's to shelter from missile was 'error'”

Pacific Command has detected no ballistic missile threat to Hawaii, Pacom officials said in a statement today after Hawaii residents received an emergency notification at 8:07 a.m. local time - 1:07 p.m. EST - warning of an inbound ballistic missile threat and urging them to seek shelter. "We need to get to the bottom of what happened and make sure it never happens again", Hirono tweeted.

The Hawaii Emergency Management agency tweeted that the alert was false within 15 minutes of it being sent out around 8 a.m., but cellphone screenshots show a delay of almost 40 minutes between the original alert and another declaring it to be a false alarm.

After the alert went out, there was panic on social media and confusion on the island.

President Donald Trump has been briefed on a false alert that Hawaii was under the threat of being hit by a ballistic missile.

The governor's remarks come after Hawaii Emergency Management Agency Administrator Vern Miyagi headed to the agency's 24-hour operations center to find out why the false alert was sent out, according to an email to CNN.

The @FCC is launching a full investigation into the false emergency alert that was sent to residents of Hawaii.

Saiki says, "Clearly, government agencies are not prepared and lack the capacity to deal with emergency situations".

A false alert of an imminent missile threat from North Korea has created momentary panic among residents and tourists in the USA state of Hawaii. "This was purely a state exercise", White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters said.

Pai is proposing that providers "deliver these alerts to match the geographic area specified by the officials sending the alert with no more overshoot than one-tenth of a mile", he said in a statement earlier this week.

The alert caused a tizzy on the islands and across social media.

In a separate tweet after confirmation that the alert was sent in error, Peterson wrote: "Man".

The alert sent people scrambling for shelter and their cars.

A second emergency alert was sent to phones in Hawaii 38 minutes after the initial message confirming the false alarm.

Terrified residents took to Twitter to share pictures of the text after they received them on Saturday morning.

Agency spokesman Richard Repoza confirmed it was a false alarm and the agency is trying to determine what happened.

In November, Hawaii said it would resume monthly statewide testing of Cold War-era nuclear attack warning sirens for the first time in at least a quarter of a century, in preparation for a possible missile strike from North Korea.
