False Ballistic Missile Alarm in Hawaii Caused by Employee Mistake

Earlier on Saturday, an emergency alert saying "Ballistic missile threat inbound to Hawaii. Seek immediate shelter. This is not a drill," was sent to the cellphones of the state’s residents. ?

The US Pacific Command announced later that it had "detected no ballistic missile threat to Hawaii," calling the text message warning an error. White House responded to the news by saying that US President Donald Trump has been briefed on the situation, calling it an "emergency management exercise."

Hawaii's Governor David Ige apologized on Sunday for the false alert in a Twitter message. He also called for peace and de-escalation of the tensions around North Korea
