Hawaii Residents Mistakenly Sent Emergency Warning of Missile Attack
Hawaii Residents Mistakenly Sent Emergency Warning of Missile Attack
WARNING This was the warning that was sent to Hawaii residents
14 January, 2018, 05:06
The emergency alert, which was sent to cellphones just before 8:10 a.m., said in all caps, "Ballistic missile threat inbound to Hawaii".
The agency later tweeted, "NO missile threat to Hawaii".
The alert stirred panic for residents on the island and across social media.
U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa, a member of the House Armed Services Committee and a Democratic primary opponent for Gov. David Ige, called for a "thorough, impartial investigation at the state and federal level". He said he went to the lobby and everyone was panicking, running around saying, "What do we do?"
An investigation is now underway looking into why the missile warning was mistakenly shown on the Emergency Broadcast System.
The governor added that in order to prevent the error from occurring again the state will change its procedures by having more than one person involved in pushing the correct button. He said he was still in bed when the phone started going off "like insane".
Others were outraged that such an alert could go out in error.
The alert was a false alarm, the Hawaii's USA senators said on Twitter as they rushed to tamp down the hysteria that ensued. He then dubbed the breakfast "end of the world pancakes", he said, because he thought it would be his final meal.
He told Hawaii News Now on Saturday morning that after getting the alert, he huddled in his bathtub with his children and "said our prayers trying to find out what the hell was going on". "We just had this moment and told everyone how much we loved and cared about them".
The Hawaii Emergency Management Agency tweeted that there was threat about 10 minutes later.
NO missile threat to Hawaii.
"I will be working with my colleagues in the Legislature to investigate into this matter and to provide the proper oversight to ensure that our state emergency alert system is properly functioning".
U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, who represents Hawaii's 2nd congressional district, also tweeted that there was no threat.
Washington Post social media editor Gene Park tweeted out a message from his friend in Hawaii, who said he was in his vehicle when the alert came and quickly had to decide where to drive out of several locations his family members were spread across, fearing he wouldn't reach them in time. State of Hawaii will send out a correction message as soon possible. Brian Schatz (D-HI) said that the mistake was "totally inexcusable".
The alert turned out to be false and the result of human error. "This false alarm caused real harm across the state". "There needs to be tough and quick accountability and a fixed process", he wrote.
