Panic and confusion swept Hawaii on Saturday as a mistaken alert about a ballistic missile attack spread across the Pacific US state, sending residents and tourists scrambling for shelter and questioning why an all-clear was not issued faster.
Several golfers participating in the US PGA Tour's Sony Open in Honolulu also reacted to the alarming episode.
Charles Howell III was among players staying at the Kahala Hotel on the golf course.
"We all just spoke about how it was weird there was no official news about the alarm", Hull said.
The engaged couple says the notification was frightening, but they wanted to make sure it was true before panicking.
"We kind of just sat there and waited, because we didn't know where to go anyways", she said.
The alert sent many islanders into a state of panic.
Cindy McMillan, a spokeswoman for Gov. David Ige (IG'-eh) confirmed to The Associated Press that it was human error, but she didn't have further details.
"Hawaii's civil defense system failed Hawaii's residents this morning". After more than 30 minutes, the public was notified the alert has been a mistake. The Hawaii House of Representatives will immediately investigate what happened and there will be consequences.
Gen. Joe Logan contacts U.S. Pacific Command to verify that there was no missile launch.
Allison Guzman and her friends were on a trip to Oahu from Fort Lauderdale when alerts came. Although the initial warning said "This is not a drill", many still questioned, "Is this real?"
Kim said he spoke against the state adding the missile alerts, which it recently began testing, because he didn't think it was ready.
Trump is spending the weekend in Florida.
The message sent statewide just after 8 a.m. Saturday read: "BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII".
"However, right now is not the time to point blame, but rather to reflect on how we, as government officials and emergency response agencies, can and will improve our policies and procedures in the event of a true missile threat". Until all the changes are introduced, tests of the ballistic missile preparation checklist, which were performed several times a day since November 1, have been put on hold by the authorities.
"What happened today is totally inexcusable".
The FCC is working to better target alerts to impacted people and will vote this month on a proposal to "more precisely target these alerts to affected communities". The false alarm apparently happened when a worker at the Hawaiian emergency management agency pushed the wrong button.
A wave of worry quickly washed over the islands Saturday morning as Hawaii residents were fearful for almost 40 minutes that a nuclear attack was imminent.
"While I am thankful this morning's alert was a false alarm, the public must have confidence in our emergency alert system".
