Hawaii Experienced False Alarm For Missile Strike This Morning
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red links & note magenta)
On Saturday morning, 8:07 am local time, an erroneous alert message was sent to people in Hawaii, via text message and social media, warning people to take cover due to imminent missile strike. It was a test not meant for public. Moments later, Congress woman Tulsi Gabbard sent this text message out:
HAWAII-THIS IS A FALSE ALARM. THERE IS NO INCOMING MISSILE TO HAWAII. I HAVE CONFIRMED WITH OFFICIALS THERE IS NO INCOMING MISSILE.
Within 15 minutes or so after the erroneous message sent out, many students on University of Florida campus were running for cover.
Further investigation will be conducted into the cause of the false alarm from the federal agency on Feb. 6, 2018. . At the moment, the information is that a button was mistakenly pushed during the shift-change period. This brings about the question: whether it’d be better if the alarm should be a multi-person process? Whether the alarm should be run by states or federal agency? Good news is: it is not a hack.
People in Hawaii are keeping a close eye on North Korea back in 2017 after the Pentagon reportedly detected signs the country could launch another missile test. North Korea’s last intercontinental ballistic missile test caused global alarm and some experts believe it had the range to reach Hawaii and Alaska. By November of 2017, reports indicated that “North Korea’s latest missile test puts the entire U.S. in range“.Carter Evans reports. Below are two reports from July 2017:
