    We were sitting here cooking breakfast when we got ALERTS on our cell phones and TV to seek immediate shelter as there is an incoming ballistic missile threat which will arrive in minutes this is NOT a drill.

    Five very tense minutes ensued until I was able to verify on the Hawaii Emergency department Twitter account that there was no threat.
    Pacific Command DoD websites and all news sites were basically offline. Scary.

    Yikes. Scary shizzle. Maybe it was prep just in case something was to be launched.

    I'm very happy that you were not incinerated this morning.

    Indeed there are. I have a KoAloha Super Concert, which is one their more popular models.

    The cell phone alert was activated in error is what they are saying now. There were no civil defense sirens. The TV crawl was activated shortly afterwards. As I tried to seek confirmation from Pacific command, DoD, and Hawaii news sites, all of which were non-responsive probably because everyone in the state was trying to do the same thing. Because of hurricane and taunami danger I also subscribe to Honolulu Civil Beat,
    a non-profit news source that is fair and has no political agenda, and they tweeted that Hawaii Emergency Services said there was no threat.
    Not sure what really happened, doubt we we ever really know.
    My first thought was hacking, but news seems to lean towards just an error.
    The real shame is that a message like this is believable at all.
    I told Nanilei at least we would not suffer - we are right at Pearl Harbor. I am sure if an ICBM came this way it would be over swiftly.

    This whole issue IS alarming. Very glad you are all OK and all is well. Scarry stuff indeed.

    Yeah, especially when you have a whacko that has the security codes and could push a button "just to show them".
