Ajit Pai Explains FCC's 'Full Investigation' Into False Hawaii Missile Alert

Vern Miyagi Administrator HEMA left and Hawaii Gov. David Ige addressed the media Saturday Jan. 13 2018 during a press conference at the Hawaii Emergency Management Center at Diamond Head Saturday following the false alarm issued of a missile lau

And by 8:20 a.m., the state's Emergency Management Agency fired off a tweet that read: "NO missile threat to Hawaii".

This smartphone screen capture shows a false incoming ballistic missile emergency alert sent from the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency system on Saturday, Jan. 13, 2018.

The president didn't say how the White House or federal officials would "get involved with them".

Trump says what happened Saturday "was a state thing". He did not describe the level of federal involvement he envisions, but the Federal Communications Commission has opened an investigation.

The worker had been completing a shift change at the time of the alert and, according to the Washington Post, was using a drop-down menu that gave two similar options: "Test missile alert" and "Missile alert".

It was not revealed what the unidentified person's new responsibilities will be, but it was made clear that they will not be in a department where they can risk making the same mistake again. "And I went into mama-bear mode", said resident Paraluman Stice-Durkin. Its leader, Kim Jong Un, has also exchanged insults on Twitter with President Donald Trump about their arsenals.

Speaking with two reporters aboard a military aircraft en route to a diplomatic summit on the rogue nation in Vancouver, Canada, Mattis also said there wasn't any sign that North and South Korea used their newly reactivated communications hotline to clarify that North Korea had not, in fact, fired upon the US territory.

At the time, there was no template that allowed the EMA to promptly send a follow-up message informing recipients that the alert had been a false alarm.

Tests and actual missile launch notifications from now on will require activation and verification by two people, the agency said. Hawaii's Emergency Management Agency provided a bit more detail Sunday on what went wrong. State lawmakers announced they would hold a hearing next Friday.

Ige said he wished he could say there was a simple reason for why it took so long to get the correction to the false alert out. Then came the second mobile alert: someone hit the wrong button, there was no missile.

Nielsen, speaking on Fox News Sunday, said she would hate for anybody not to abide by government warnings.

USA leaders have already openly contemplated preventive strikes against a North Korean regime arming itself with ICBMs capable of reaching Hawaii or the American mainland.

The FCC has jurisdiction over the emergency alert system. "At that point, you just pray and find God, I guess". During a test last month, 12 of the state's 386 sirens played an ambulance siren.

The state adjutant general, Maj. Gen. Joe Logan, said a written report would be prepared.
