Hawaii sends out missile alert by mistake

People across the US state of Hawaii received a text on Saturday morning, warning of an impending missile strike.

It was declared a false alarm shortly afterwards, but not before panic started to spread.

"Ballistic missile threat inbound to Hawaii. Seek immediate shelter. This is not a drill," read the message, all in capital letters.

Hawaii Emergency Management Agency later confirmed there was no threat.

In an online statement, Honolulu Police Department said: "State Warning Point has issued a Missile Alert in ERROR! There is NO threat to the State of Hawaii!"

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I will admit it; when the sirens went off, I thought I wasn't going to have to worry about getting a newer car any more! :)
