Death threats after Hawaii false alarm Death threats after Hawaii false alarm

Thousands of people went on Twitter to confirm the horrifying alert, asking others if they received the same message in the state of Hawaii.

How did it happen? "The second problem was that the false alert persisted for 38 minutes".

Vern Miyagi, the administrator of the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency, took total responsibility for the mistake.

When creating systems, it's a good idea to have important commands - like the sort that can send a warning of imminent missile attack to hundreds of thousands of people - away from less critical functions. The officer was supposed to have chosen a template that would only be sent internally.

"We understand that members of our community are angry about Saturday's false alarm, and we are looking at these messages as individuals blowing off steam", the spokesman said in a statement issued to the outlet. Garritty said after the experience was behind them so the family headed to the beach.

She woke up in her Maui hotel room Saturday to an ominuous alert on her cell phone, claiming a BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT was headed for Hawaii. His motorcade left the golf course and returned to his nearby private club, Mar-a-Lago, just as Hawaii residents were being told it was a false alarm.

It later turned out to be a false alarm, but either way Robertson wasn't about to let some missile spoil his vacation.

The agency had permission from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to send out the missile alert, but not to send out the false alarm notice.

The employee who triggered the Hawaii missile alert has been "reassigned".

"I heard about people panicking", he said. A wrong button was pushed during the test triggering a statewide by the State Warning Point, HI-EMA.

"I missed it. I would've loved to have receive it", said Harris. "I'm sorry for that pain and confusion that anyone might have experienced".

In December, the state started monthly testing of its nuclear warning siren system, which is aimed at alerting residents to an impending nuclear missile strike.

The CHHS facilitates emergency management planning and walks agency personnel through a mock disaster scenario and asks what they would do at various stages of the disaster.
