Hawaiian Residents Receive Emergency Alert About Approaching Ballistic Missile; Officials Say It Was A False Alarm

Imagine waking up to an emergency alert about a ballistic missile heading your way. That’s what happened to the residents of Honolulu Saturday morning.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII,” the message read. “SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.”

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Upon learning of the emergency alert and the alleged approaching missile, residents were forced to seek shelter for safety. However, shortly after the alert, the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency revealed that it was a false alarm.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“NO missile threat to Hawaii,” the Hawaiian EMA revealed, as the mayor confirmed the mobile push alert had been a “false alarm.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“The ballistic missile warning that was issued is a FALSE alarm. Repeat FALSE alarm,” Mayor Kirk Caldwell said on Twitter.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To further clarify the incident, a spokesperson for US Pacific Command said, “USPACOM has detected no ballistic missile threat to Hawaii. Earlier message was sent in error. State of Hawaii will send out a correction message as soon as possible.”
