Breaking! “January 13, 2018, a Day that Will Not Live in Infamy”
A major “Oopsie Daisy” out in Hawaii today:
A false ballistic missile threat alert was sent to Hawaii phones on Saturday morning, sending the state into a panic.
It took about 15 minutes for officials to confirm that the alert was a mistake, but the cause of the error was not immediately clear.
But it took emergency management officials nearly 40 minutes to send out a “false alarm” alert to cell phones using the same mechanism that sent out the emergency warning in the first place.
