Hawaii emergency officials say ballistic missile threat alert was a mistake | Fox News

Quote:
Hawaii emergency officials confirmed Saturday that an alert warning that a ballistic missile was inbound to the island was a mistake.

Earlier Saturday, Hawaiian citizens reported receiving an emergency alert on their phone that stated: “BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.”

House Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, tweeted in regard to the alert: “HAWAII – THIS IS A FALSE ALARM. THERE IS NO INCOMING MISSILE TO HAWAII. I HAVE CONFIRMED WITH OFFICIALS THERE IS NO INCOMING MISSILE.”

Don't worry. The civil defense employee who hit the wrong button feels really bad 'bout it.

I bolded in red the hysterical part. It's all hysterical but the bolded red is super-hysterical. "Are you sure?" WTF is this, some sort of Windows application?

And I'm still shocked anything could go wrong while under the watch of someone named Mr. Miyagi.

Hawaii's false missile threat: Worker 'feels terrible' after pushing the wrong button | Fox News

Quote:
After Hawaii emergency officials confirmed that an alert about an inbound ballistic missile was a mistake, they said the employee who pushed the wrong button feels awful about the panic-inducing incident.

Vern Miyagi, who oversees the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency (EMA), said at a news conference late Saturday that the civil defense employee who pushed the wrong button regrets what took place.

"This guy feels bad, right. He's not doing this on purpose - it was a mistake on his part and he feels terrible about it," said Miyagi in a press conference Saturday afternoon.

Miyagi, a retired Army major general, said the employee would be "counseled and drilled so this never happens again," but he did not say whether there would be disciplinary measures.

Rather than triggering a test of the system, it went into actual event mode. He confirmed that to trigger the alert, there is a two-step process involving only one employee — who both triggers the alarm, then also confirms it.

"There is a screen that says, 'Are you sure you want to do this?'" Miyagi said. The employee confirmed the alert, inadvertently causing a panic in a state already on edge over saber-rattling missile threats from North Korea.

Hawaii Gov. David Ige said there wasn't a process in place to send out a message stating "that this is a false alarm."

"You know, we were not prepared for that, the fact that an alert was issued that was incorect," Ige said. "So we have that built now."

Anybody over 45 knows that hiding under a school desk is adequate protection from a nuclear bomb.

Looks like someone doesn't want Jamie Lee Curtis to be the dumbest peep in the room.

Jim Carrey rips Trump for Hawaiian missile crisis: US heading for ‘suffering beyond all imagination’

Quote:
“I woke up this morning in Hawaii with ten minutes to live. It was a false alarm, but a real psychic warning. If we allow this one-man Gomorrah and his corrupt Republican congress to continue alienating the world we are headed for suffering beyond all imagination,” Carrey wrote, adding a crying face emoticon.

Carrey was widely bashed in the replies to his tweet.

“This had nothing to do with our president. You’re happy this happened so you can politicize it. I’m in Hawaii, too,” the top reply said.

“Love you Jim as your films made my childhood….but this tweet is pure bs,” another person added.

Actress Jaime Lee Curtis placed blame for the incident squarely on the president, who was in Florida at the time the emergency alert was sent:

This Hawaii missle scare is on YOU Mr. Trump. The real FEAR that mothers & fathers & children felt is on YOU. It is on YOUR ARROGANCE. HUBRIS. NARCISSISM. RAGE. EGO. IMMATURITY and your UNSTABLE IDIOCY. Shame on your hate filled self. YOU DID THIS!

Jamie Lee is most likey blissfully unaware that the Little Sh!t running North Korea successfully detonated several nuclear tests and launched 4 or five missiles over Japan long before THE Donald won the election.

She should send her Hubris challenge to the Secretary's of state and the President who held their hands and breath in strategic patience whilst this madman in PRONK developed such technologies to make such threats to our homeland,,,,,; credible.
