False ballistic missile alarm in Hawaii caused by employee mistake

Hawaii missile threat

"This is not a drill", it read.

Officials in Hawaii blame the mess on human error.

"I woke up and saw missile warning and thought no way".

Austin said the state of the world right now makes this threat feel all to real. Vern Miyagi of the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency said, "There is a screen that says are you sure you want to do this?"

The EMA Administrator Vern Miyagi told the media at the press conference that the person responsible feels bad and that the mistake was not made on goal and that he feels awful about the entire situation.

KVUE spoke to Sara Silverburg, a Pflugerville woman who just moved to Hawaii for her husband's military job.

Trump is a racist and Republicans who won't denounce him are too
Trump denied in a pair of tweets on Friday that he made the comment, but referred to Haiti as a "very poor and troubled country". His racist statements have forced the media to come to terms with Trump and his history of racism despite possible backlash.

Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii), tweeted that an investigation into the matter is necessary to prevent future incidents. "The only thing we could've done was just kind of stay where we were".

"We just went running, we went to this other place, a concrete building, people were just running in the street, they were desperate".

Social media posts show that some Hawaii residents were hiding in fear of an imminent strike.

After the false alarm, Hawaiian lawmakers tweeted about the event, noting the seriousness of it, and explaining how a false alarm of this nature is unacceptable-especially in a time of heightened tensions between the USA and North Korea. "We must investigate and we must do better", she wrote on Twitter.
