There was commotion on Saturday in Hawaii, United States (U.S.), after emergency officers confirmed that an alert signifying that ballistic missile was inbound to the island, was a mistake.
Hawaii Emergency Management Agency tweeted that there was “NO missile threat” to the state.
The company spokesman Richard Repoza stated the alert was a false alarm. He stated the company was working to find out what occurred.
Fox News’ Chad Pergram stated he spoke to 2 folks on the Kona aspect of the island who stated they had been informed to remain of their resort room and that there was a missile incoming.
Earlier message was despatched in error; state of Hawaii will ship out a correction message as quickly as potential.”
Schatz wrote in a separate tweet that what occurred was “totally inexcusable.”
The second alert despatched by Hawaii’s Emergency Management Agency telling residents there was no risk arrived roughly 38 minutes after the ballistic warning risk.
“Today’s alert was a false alarm,” Hirono wrote.
“At a time of heightened tensions, we need to make sure all information released to the community is accurate. We need to get to the bottom of what happened and make sure it never happens again.”
