For 38 Minutes Today, Hawaii Thought It Was Under Nuclear Attack

Hawaii's public warning system issued a warning to everyone on Hawaii that a ballistic nuclear missile was on its way.

Hawaii's public warning system issued an 'emergency alert' to everyone on Hawaii that a ballistic nuclear missile was on its way. It was not until 38-minutes after the initial warning that the warning system retracted the ballistic missile alert. The Governor of Hawaii blamed the 'emergency alert' on someone hitting the wrong button.

The initial alert warned residents of Hawaii to "seek shelter" amid an incoming ballistic threat, while the second alert said that "there is no missile threat or danger to the State of Hawaii."
