Hawaii government officials sent out a text message to cellphone users alerting them to an incoming ballistic missile, according to Breaking911 earlier today. The alert was reportedly repeated on radio and television broadcasts as well. It turned out to be an error.

“BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL,” the emergency alert read.

The city and county of Honolulu sent it out at about 8 a.m..

In the meantime, people stuffed children into storm drains.

It created a panic on social media.

A second emergency alert went out about 40 minutes later clarifying that the first alert was a false alarm, CNN associate producer Amanda Golden tweeted. “Repeat. False Alarm” the second alert read.

The Hawaii Emergency Management Agency eventually tweeted “NO missile threat to Hawaii.”

Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell also tweeted saying the alert was sent in “ERROR.”

Tulsi Gabbard also tweeted.

OOPSIE, HIT THE WRONG BUTTON

And as is to be expected, the left-wing social media users blamed Trump. It is of course in no way Trump’s fault.

As it turns out, an employee touched the wrong button.
