Default Hawaii Mistakenly Tells Citizens a Ballistic Missile is Inbound

Residents in Hawaii got a rude wake up today when the emergency warning system texted an alert saying a ballistic missile was heading their way.



It took 38 mins for officials to text out a retraction. No missile.



Quote:
EMA spokesman Richard Repoza said the agency was trying to determine what had happened, the Associated Press news agency reports.

The agency describes reaction in the state as "full-blown panic".

Jamie Malapit, owner of a Honolulu hair salon, texted clients to say he was cancelling their appointments and closing his shop for the day, AP reports.

He said he had still been in his bed when his phone started ringing "like crazy".

Afterwards, he was still "a little freaked out" and feeling paranoid even after hearing it was a false alarm, AP adds.

Typical liberal leech loser reply. Blame everyone in the world except you.
Of course pussy boy obama being a coward didn't help.
Bush, clinton, Bush being weak on fat boys dad didn't help.

PRESIDENT Trump is a big mouth attention whore, but at least these POS countries know we aren't going to bow down like obama did repeatedly!!!

President Bush had it for awhile, but lost it.

This is on the weak minded fools & liberal leeches that make us look weak & cowardly.
We were the giant, countries respected us & our abilities, now we are a laughing stock
Now we are just push overs that give money away like water, and allow welfare whores to stroll across the border and sit on their fat lazy ass's all day.

Shame because she looked pretty damned good in Trading Places.

"There is a screen that says, 'Are you sure you want to do this?'" Miyagi said. The employee confirmed the alert, inadvertently causing a panic in a state already on edge over saber-rattling missile threats from North Korea.

When I was working on storage arrays it would discreetly ask you to type LOSE DATA to confirm data loss.

Preliminary FCC report is out. Hawaii supervisor screwed up and included "This is not a drill" in a recorded message. Recorded message? A missile is supposedly coming and he/she leaves a voice mail?

Quote:
According to a preliminary FCC report, a supervisor's recorded message included the phrase "exercise, exercise, exercise" but also mistakenly included the phrase "this is not a drill."
Employee who sent the alert is NOT COOPERATING WITH THE INVESTIGATION? Why the hell not? Why is he still employed? Why is the supervisor still employed?

Quote:
Officials from the FCC's Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau noted that they still have not spoken with the employee who sent the alert, who has refused to cooperate with the investigation.

The alert was not corrected for nearly 40 minutes, leading to panic among the state's residents.
