Whoopsie Daisies! - Ballistic Missile Threat Alert Accidentally Texted to All of Hawaii

Officials quickly confirmed afterward that the alert was a false alarm and had been sent out by mistake.

But the warning turned out to be completely false, and the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency tweeted that there was no missile threat to the state.

An emergency alert was mistakenly sent to residents of Hawaii Saturday that told people to seek immediate shelter.

"It was part of a drill that was going on", a spokesperson from Hawaii's Emergency Management Agency told BuzzFeed News.

The National Weather Service in Honolulu released a statement saying that the initial alert was "a test message". "There is no incoming missile to Hawaii".

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard also posted to Twitter, reassuring citizens that she has confirmed with officials that "there is no incoming missile".

NORAD spokesman Lt. Commander Joe Nawroo said that they were trying to establish how the serious command and control error was made.

"This was the message received on every single mobile phone at 8.07 am this morning in the US State of Hawaii. Repeat. False alarm", the message said.
