    'The whole state was terrified': Panic in Hawaii as Civil Defense issues alert for 'inbound ballistic missile threat' which told thousands to 'urgently seek shelter' then takes 37 MINUTES to say it was a false alarm
    • The alert was issued to residents' phones at 8.07am on Saturday morning
    • It told them to seek shelter and warned of an 'inbound ballistic missile threat'
    • Residents called Civil Defense in a panic and were told it was a mistake
    • Despite government agencies tweeting that it was a mistake, it took 37 minutes for another alert to be issued
    • Officials have since confirmed the mistake and said it was caused by 'human error'
    • One person said they were told that 'someone pushed the wrong buttons' during an emergency systems drill

    Checking.....nope, still no arrests in DC for selling uranium to the Russians. Deflection! Distraction! Nothing more! The whole thing is an act....a show...to manipulate the people and empower their emotions, thereby controlling their emotions and ultimately, their decisions! Mind Control 101!

    Hawaii ballistic missile false alarm prompts panic – and whisky drinking


    Julia Carrie Wong in San Francisco and Liz Barney on Oahu

    Sat 13 Jan 2018 15.44 EST First published on Sat 13 Jan 2018 13.46 EST



    An alert about an incoming ballistic missile sent Hawaii into panic for about 30 minutes on Saturday, until emergency officials announced that the message had been sent in error.

    The alert, which was sent to cellphones, said there was a threat “inbound to Hawaii” and said residents should seek shelter. “This is not a drill,” it added.

    Tensions between the Trump administration and nuclear-armed North Korea have increased over fears the regime in Pyongyang may be able to reach US territory with a nuclear-armed missile.

    Hawaiian authorities have been preparing and testing early warning systems, and residents have been urged to make emergency plans.

    “Everyone’s got a plan,” said Ashly Trask, 39, who lives on the island of Kauai. “It’s very real.”

    Trask’s home, like many on the islands, is constructed with single-ply walls and has no basement. When the alert came, Trask said, she piled her mother, 15-year-old son, two-year-old daughter and partner into the car, swung by her other son’s workplace to pick him up, and then sped to her office at the botanical gardens: a building with concrete walls that is used as a hurricane shelter.

    “It was definitely kind of a panic zone,” she said. “Everyone knows you have about 15 minutes until detonation, and no one knows where it will land.”

    Family members on the other side of the island were too far away to get to the gardens within that short timespan.

    “They called us and they were crying because they realized they wouldn’t have made it to us,” Trask said.

    In western Oahu, people ran out of buildings into the streets, some in states of undress. According to a witness, some took shelter in the basement of a parking structure, where people cried and children huddled on rolls of fabric.

    Approximately 30 minutes later, authorities said the alert was a mistake.

    Many in the parking shelter hugged, cried, shook and prepared to head back outside. Others said they would remain undercover until they received confirmation from the coast guard that all was safe.

    Hawaii governor David Ige told CNN the false alarm was caused by human error. “It was a mistake made during a standard procedure at the change over of a shift, and an employee pushed the wrong button,” he said.

    The alert came as Oahu staged a 100-mile endurance run, the HURT100. Some runners sheltered under a bridge before resuming racing.

    Beth Ann Brooks of Haleiwa told the Guardian she was at the beach when she received the alert and raced home. She and her husband sheltered in their bathroom, she said.

    “We grabbed couch cushions and our hurricane kit and water and sat there talking to the kids and trying to calm them down,” Brooks said. “They didn’t say much. It was horrible. The fear I felt was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced.”

    The US congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard tweeted that the alert was an error, writing: “HAWAII – THIS IS A FALSE ALARM. THERE IS NO INCOMING MISSILE TO HAWAII. I HAVE CONFIRMED WITH OFFICIALS THERE IS NO INCOMING MISSILE.”

    A White House statement said Donald Trump had been “briefed on the state of Hawaii’s emergency management exercise”.

    For some, the prospect of the end of the world was an opportunity to indulge. Joshua Keoki Versola was home alone in Mililani when he received the alert. As he waited for his fiancee to drive home from her place of work, the 35-year-old network engineer opened a bottle of Hibiki 21, an award-winning and expensive Japanese whisky.

    “I was about to start pouring drinks and go out in style,” Versola said “What are we going to do in this situation? We really can’t do anything but just try and make the best of it.”

    White House says false ballistic missile threat was 'purely a state exercise' in Hawaii
    • 45m


    • An emergency alert went out Saturday morning warning Hawaii of an incoming ballistic missile threat.
    • The alert turned out to be a false alarm.
    • As state officials quickly worked to address the mistake, the White House released a statement in which it appeared to distance itself from the situation in Hawaii.

    The White House appeared to distance itself from a colossal mix-up that resulted in a false alert being sent out in Hawaii warning of an impending ballistic missile threat.

    President Donald Trump was on his golf course at the Mar-a-Lago luxury resort in Florida when the situation unfolded. The White House deputy press secretary, Lindsay Walters, released a statement afterward saying Trump had been made aware of the situation.

    "The President has been briefed on the state of Hawaii's emergency management exercise," the statement said. "This was purely a state exercise."

    The White House said Trump was meeting with Robert Lighthizer, the US Trade Representative, on Saturday. It came as officials quickly worked to reassure the public that an alert sent to people's phones in the state was a false alarm.

    The Hawaii Emergency Management Agency tweeted , " NO missile threat to Hawaii." An official from the North American Aerospace Defense Command, the agency in charge of providing aerospace warnings in North America, told BuzzFeed News that there was "absolutely no incoming ballistic missile threat" and that they were working to find out why the first alert was sent.

    A second alert went out about 45 minutes later.

    "There is no missile threat or danger to the State of Hawaii. Repeat. False alarm," the message said.

    Hawaii has a very progressive state government and the ability to pull this off to draw attention to the NK missile thing and further dramatize the entire issue. Of course they did this! The question is who REALLY is behind it? Trump? CIA? Was it indeed a successful shoot down of a missile? Who knows but highly unlikely IMHO! Kim has everything to lose and he's not that much of an idiot! Nah, other people are pushing the buttons. What's happening these days is unprecedented and I'm afraid the apocalypse has already begun.

    They say on CNN that an employee "pushed the wrong button"
    And it took him 38 minutes to figure that out?
    Interesting...

    Who pushed the button? Anger in Hawaii over Civil Defense bungle that told terrified islanders a MISSILE was rocketing towards them causing thousands to flee to bomb shelters and pray for their lives
    • The alert was issued to residents' phones at 8.07am on Saturday morning
    • It told them to seek shelter and warned of an 'inbound ballistic missile threat'
    • Residents called Civil Defense in a panic and were told it was a mistake
    • Hawaii Emergency Management Agency tweeted out all clear 12 minutes later
    • It took 37 minutes for a second phone alert to be issued across the state
    • By then, terrified residents had flocked to shelters and into their garages
    • Some say they never even received the second message on their phones
    • Governor David Ige said the alert was sent out by accident when a Civil Defense employee mistakenly pushed the button during a shift change
    • An FCC investigation into the incident is underway, officials said

    Probably not. But what they come up with for an encore after Trump is gone, I have no clue.

    The sheeple are very likely to fall right back asleep if they can't keep this going, and tell me how is that a good thing?

    This is a test of the emergency broadcast system. Had this been an actual emergency you would have been told to kiss your ass goodbye.

    not sure if I understand what you're saying, how does the sheeple falling back asleep after Trump's gone going to instill more fear? When they're asleep they appear to be "sleeping like a baby"

    I'm betting the bureaucrats change up the working conditions. Making it a two man operation like the missile silos. Both have to agree and hit their buttons together.

    Yeah, The peon got into trouble but it is the upper brass that approved the working condition to save $$$$$$.
    It'll change now.

    I heard people on the street were popping off manhole covers, jumping in and getting underground. Anything to get the "F" out of the way.

    Human error that triggered a false missile alert turned Hawaii upside down. People crawled under tables in cafes, were ushered into military hangars and huddled around televisions to watch the news for the latest developments.

    This was the best "drill" they could have hoped for. Let's 'em see what people would really do, and gets people seriously thinking about what they'd do in such a scenario. It was a "hot" drill.

    Hawaii Statewide 'Inbound Ballistic Missile Threat' Was a Beta Test to Gauge Realtime Citizen Panic
    Lionel Nation



    Published on Jan 14, 2018
    'Emergency Alert: BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL,' the terrifying message read.

    The unbelievably negligent false alarm was sent at about 8am local time by an errant Hawaii Emergency Management employee who 'pushed the wrong buttons' during an internal drill timed to coincide with a shift handover. The all-clear phone alert was not sent until 38 minutes later. Can you believe this?

    But what invaluable information was learnt through this beta test? Everything. Nit saying it was deliberate . . . but invaluable.

    Hawaii agency behind the missile alert scare is getting death threats from people 'blowing off steam' after terrifying false alarm
    • The alert caused panic after it was transmitted to phones on Saturday morning
    • Hawaii Emergency Management Agency (HEMA) is getting death threats from the public over the false alarm
    • It said it was not planning to take action against those making threats who were 'angry' and 'blowing off steam'
    • HEMA issued alert Saturday: 'Emergency Alert: BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL'
    • Terrified residents and tourists ran for their lives, taking cover in shelters, abandoning cars and even lowering loved ones through manhole covers
    • It took another 40 minutes for HEMA to finally cancel the missile alarm

    My thoughts on the recent false emergency alert that caught Hawaiins off gaurd! What would you do in this scenario? Chances are if and when the emergency broadcast system sounds, murphys law indicates that its timing in relation to your schedule will be less than optimal!
