Pushing "the wrong button": Hawaiians jarred by false alarm of ballistic missile threat

HAWAII MAUNA KEA
A false alarm shook Hawaiians early local time Saturday as alerts mistakenly warned islanders of a ballistic missile threat.


Shortly after 8 a.m. Hawaii residents began posting screenshots of alerts they had received on their phones that said "BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL."

A tweet by State Rep. Tulsi Gabbard confirmed the false alarm, saying it was sent out inadvertently and that she checked with state officials.

Hawaii Gov. David Ige told CNN that the mistake was caused by someone pushing "the wrong button."
