Hawaii False Emergency Alert For Ballistic Missile

Hawaii (Pixabay)


Citizens in Hawaii had quite the scare when they were told that a ballistic missile had been launched toward them. Turns out, it wasn't true and thank goodness it wasn't.

On Saturday morning around 8 A.M, people got notifications on their phones, televisions and even heard sirens letting them know that a missile had been launched toward them.

It must be noted that this is standard procedure since the notifications would give some people enough time to get to cover and possibly survive the attack.

The messages read: "BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL,"

The alert ended very quickly once it was clear that no missile was launched toward Hawaii. The Hawaii EMA (Hawaii Emergency Management Agency) even Tweeted out that there was no missile threat.

The false alarm will surely be looked into to attempt to prevent another false alert situation in the future.



False alarms can occur both my system errors and by humans. In this particular case, we're not sure as to who or what caused the false alert to go out. On a good note, at least everything seemed to be working fine with the actual distribution of the alert info to the citizens.
