Hawaii Terrifies Citizens By Sending Alert Of Imminent Ballistic Missile Attack That Was A False Alarm
Many people are on edge because of a possible nuclear war with North Korea. The rogue state has made numerous threats of nuking American territories in the past. With the notion of nuclear armageddon in the back of many people’s minds, this text message alert issued by the state of Hawaii that warned of an imminent ballistic missile attack must have utterly terrified citizens who received it.
Around 8 am local time on Saturday, Hawaii’s Emergency Management Agency (EMA) sent a mass text message alert in all-caps to Hawaiians that stated: “BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK SHELTER IMMEDIATELY. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.” The ominous and horrifying warning was quickly acknowledged to be a false alarm by Hawaii Sen. Tulsi Gabbard and she issued her own all-caps message on Twitter: “HAWAII – THIS IS A FALSE ALARM. THERE IS NO INCOMING MISSILE TO HAWAII. I HAVE CONFIRMED WITH OFFICIALS THERE IS NO INCOMING MISSILE.” Hawaii EMA’s official Twitter account also corrected their false warning by saying: “NO missile threat to Hawaii.”
