A Ballistic Missile Threat Was What Woke Up Hawaii This Morning

imagine sitting,
or laying around,
and your phone going off this morning.
you’re in the middle of paradise and you get this:

like,
up and fuckin’ at em.
you’re on an island with no place else to go.
well,
that’s the message the good folks in hawaii got today.
the “ny post” has more details

The emergency alert about an incoming “ballistic missile threat” that jolted Hawaiians awake Saturday morning was a false alarm, officials said.

Multiple people began tweeting about an alert they received on their cellphones at around around 8 a.m. local time.

“Ballistic missile threat inbound to Hawaii. Seek immediate shelter. This is not a drill,” the alert read.

“Did anyone else’s iPhone just tell them there’s a ballistic missile headed for Hawaii and to take cover immediately?” Twitter user @easytga wrote.

Congresswoman Tusli Gabbard quickly tweeted to debunk the alert.

…she wrote around 12 minutes after the message was sent.

A second alert was sent out at around 8: 45 a.m. local time, letting residents know it was a false alarm.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command confirmed to The Post there is no danger.

“There is no threat at this time,” Public Affairs Officer Joe Nawrocki said. “We’re actually trying to figure it out right now. We don’t know if it was a test and someone forgot to put, ‘This is a drill.’

“There is absolutely no incoming ballistic missile threat to Hawaii,” he added.

A spokesman for Hawaii’s Emergency Management Agency told Buzzfeed News the false alarm “was part of a drill that was going on.”

It’s unclear what caused the alert to go out.

this is a news reporter vixen in hawaii’s tweet:

like,
that is out of control!!!!
knowing me,

i’d probably would have been asleep when the alert hit my phone.
wtf could you even do?
i’m glad everything was cleared up,
but a part of me feels like that wasn’t a false alarm.
stay tuned foxhole.
the second season aka 2018 is looking like it’s about to be a doozy.

  1. INSTRUCTIONS TO PATRON ON PREMISES
    IN CASE OF NUCLEAR BOMB ATTACK

    Upon the First Warning:

    1. Stay clear of all windows

    2. Keep hands free of glasses, bottles, cigarettes, etc.

    3. Stand away from bar, tables, orchestra equipment and furniture.

    4. Loosen necktie, unbutton coat and any other restrictive clothing.

    5. Remove glasses. empty pockets of all sharp objects such as pens, pencils, etc.

    6. Immediately upon seeing the brilliant flash of nuclear explosion, bend over and place your head firmly between you legs.

    7. Then kiss your ass goodbye.

    1. This is from a 1970 Anti-Nuclear protest poster. I remember seeing it when I was a little kid. It was on a wall where my mother had once worked.

  2. I couldn’t even imagine having to go through a mental nightmare like that!!
    NYC…we straight up fucked if a nuclear attack ever happens.
    The bridges/tunnels/parkways would be jam packed…hindering any kind of travel.
    I’ll just go to the basement of the house I live in, find a corner, and deal with the fallout afterwards.

"off topic", trolling, and other nonsense gets sent to my spam folder. other than that, play nice and let's discuss!
