Incoming Missile False Alert Sent Out To Hawaii

Incoming Missile False Alert Sent Out To Hawaii  That Has Hawaiians on alert.

Hawaii emergency officials said on Saturday an alert on a ballistic missile threat was a false alarm.

The alert stated there was a threat “inbound to Hawaii” and said residents should seek shelter. “This is not a drill,” it added.

The alert caused a panic when it went to people’s cellphones on Saturday morning. Shortly afterwards, authorities said it was a mistake.

Hawaii Emergency Management Agency spokesman Richard Rapoza said it was not clear what caused the alert to go out.
