Hawaii accidentally sends out missile threat alert
Residents of Hawaii have been mistakenly alerted via their phones a missile was inbound.
The alert literally set off a panic with people running in the streets, according to reports received by True Pundit. Hawaii television news networks were instructing residents to seek shelter from the missile attack.
“One of my employees called me and said it’s coming, there’s a North Korean missile inbound,” one resident said. “You need to take shelter now.”
“BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII,” it reads in all-caps. “SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.”
