False ballistic missile alert goes out in Hawaii

Top 5 logical fallacies of the week

Residents of Hawaii were thrown into a panic Saturday morning after an emergency alert was sent warning of a ballistic missile threat. Authorities in the state have been preparing for a worse-case attack scenario since July, and residents would have around 15 minutes to seek shelter in case of a nuclear missile attack from North Korea.

Officials said quickly after that the alert went out by mistake and was a false alarm.

"It was part of a drill that was going on", a spokesperson from Hawaii's Emergency Management Agency told BuzzFeed News. "There is no incoming missile to Hawaii".

Commander David Benham, a spokesman for US Pacific Command confirmed in a statement that there is no threat: "USPACOM has detected no ballistic missile threat to Hawaii", the statement read. "My phone's being blowing up".

Tulsi Gabbard tweeted a screenshot of the alert on her phone with a clarification that it was a false alarm: "HAWAII - THIS IS A FALSE ALARM". It was a false alarm based on a human error. It was the first time since the Cold War that Hawaii reinstituted the practice, and it comes as the United States sees heightening tensions with North Korea, which has increased its nuclear aggression in recent months.
