Hawaii issues missile warning in error, sending panic on - social media.

Posted: Jan 13th, 2018 - 2:08 pm

Residents and visitors in the Hawaiian Islands Saturday received a missile warning alert in error, but not before creating a panic on social media.

The alert read in all capital letters: “Ballistic missile threat inbound to Hawaii. Seek immediate shelter. This is not a drill.”

The alert was sent sometime after 8 a.m. local time, and many people took to Twitter to share screenshots of their phones.

A second emergency alert went out about 40 minutes later clarifying that the first alert was a false alarm, CNN associate producer Amanda Golden tweeted. “Repeat. False Alarm” the second alert read.

The Hawaii Emergency Management Agency eventually tweeted “NO missile threat to Hawaii.”
