Hawaii officials freak out populace by sending out mistaken 'inbound ballistic missile warning' to cell phones
Warning sent to cell phone in Hawaii

In what was called "a hell of a mistake to make," Civil Defense officials in Hawaii sent out an incorrect warning to the island residents that a ballistic missile was on its way.


Lawmaker Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) sent out a screenshot of the warning she received that stated: "Ballistic missile inbound to Hawaii. Seeks shelter immediately. This is not a drill."

According to the Democratic lawmaker, " THIS IS A FALSE ALARM. THERE IS NO INCOMING MISSILE TO HAWAII. I HAVE CONFIRMED WITH OFFICIALS THERE IS NO INCOMING MISSILE."
