An incoming missile alert plunged residents of Hawaii into panic yesterday, January 13, morning before it was declared a false alarm.
Mobile phone users received a message saying, “Ballistic missile threat inbound to Hawaii. Seek immediate shelter. This is not a drill.”
State Governor David Ige apologised and said it was caused by an employee pressing the wrong button.
The US government announced there would be a full investigation.
An alert system is in place because of the potential proximity of Hawaii to North Korean missiles.
