Ballistic Missile Emergency Alert To People In Hawaii, 1/13/2018, 8:08 AM

It is nice to know there would be a warning in a missile attack, but what a doozy of false alarm, if it was that. Perhaps there really was a missile headed for Hawaii and we secretly shot it down?

Hawaii residents and visitors received shocking mobile push alerts Saturda morning warning of an approaching missile and instructing people to seek shelter, but Hawaii’s Emergency Management Agency quickly stated the message was sent in error.

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

Shortly after, the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency informed Twitter followers there was no missile threat to Hawaii.

“NO missile threat to Hawaii.”

Honolulu mayor Kirk Caldwell and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) also said the message was a “false alarm.”

HAWAII – THIS IS A FALSE ALARM. THERE IS NO INCOMING MISSILE TO HAWAII. I HAVE CONFIRMED WITH OFFICIALS THERE IS NO INCOMING MISSILE.

— @Tulsi Gabbard (@TulsiGabbard)

“The ballistic missile warning that was issued is a FALSE alarm. Repeat FALSE alarm.”

— @Mayor Kirk Caldwell (@MayorKirkHNL)

A second alert was sent out at around 8:45 a.m. local time, letting residents know it was a false alarm.

There was a test ballistic missile shoot down about a month ago:

The U.S. Missile Defense Agency (MDA) said a U.S. warship successfully shot down a medium-range ballistic missile in a test off Hawaii on Wednesday, as North Korean leader Kim Jong Un vowed to press ahead with more missile tests in the Pacific.

Some were scared, but many just accepted it and carried on calmly. This is a great story:

Stay tuned. I’ll post any interesting further developments here.
