FCC chairman: Hawaii didn't have 'reasonable' safeguards

FCC chairman: Hawaii didn't have 'reasonable' safeguards FCC chairman: Hawaii didn't have 'reasonable' safeguards

Hawaii recently installed and began testing a nuclear warning siren in December, Worley said, so to most people living on the islands, a legitimate threat was not outside the realm of possibility - even if it was a ballistic, not nuclear, missile. The alert insisted it was not a drill, but the alert was sent by accident.

"If you are watching this video, that means I didn't make it", Mark Gardner said in the video.

He immediately pulled over, began streaming on Facebook Live, got out of the vehicle to calm himself and looked at the sky for signs of an incoming missile. The system has come under growing scrutiny in recent months, with public safety officials complaining that it requires upgrades on several fronts. Congresswoman Gabbard is with us now. Catt said. "So, there wasn't much we could do".

Outside of the nuclear threat posed by North Korea, Gabbard said the false alarm highlighted the threat of nuclear war due to mistakes and false information.

Again, on behalf of the State of HI, I apologize for yesterday's events and any hardship and inconvenience this created for you, your family and loved ones.

US President Donald Trump continued to golf on Saturday, 13 January, as Hawaii rushed for cover after a false cell phone alert warned of an imminent ballistic missile attack in the state.

Senator Brian Schatz praised FCC chairman Ajit Pai for moving swiftly to address the mistake, which plunged Hawaii into panic and confusion for some 38 minutes until officials issued a message cancelling the initial alert.

The false notification is being blamed on human error. We can not let this single mistake overshadow their many years of commitment and service. Their attitude and their-what they want to do, I think it's terrific.

Hawaii Emergency Management Agency Administrator Vern Miyagi explained Sunday that the inbound missile alert was sent by a member of his team during a routine test that happens at the start of every shift, NBC News reports. She said this is the result of the United States' military history of changing regimes around the world.

Such mistakes in the past brought the US and the Soviet Union to the brink of unintentional nuclear war, she said.

"We thought it was the end for about 10 minutes", said Doriane Tippet of Fort Collins.

"The people of Hawaii are paying the price now for decades of failed leadership in this country" by setting "unrealistic preconditions", she said. Its leader, Kim Jong Un, has also exchanged insults on Twitter with President Donald Trump about their arsenals. What would you like to see out of those negotiations? "We need peace - not political bickering", the Democratic lawmaker tweeted.

The weekend fiasco in Hawaii, where people spent 40 minutes expecting an incoming strike based on an erroneous alert, has highlighted a preparedness gap in Canada, where references to a nuclear attack are conspicuous by their absence.

"The people of Hawaii should never have had to go through this". State lawmakers announced they would hold a hearing next Friday.

MARTIN: That was Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii.

However, we need to be sure that in responding, we do not seek retribution where we should be identifying solutions.

GABBARD: Thank you. Aloha.
