People in Hawaii just got quite the scare when an Emergency Alert was issued that warned residents that ballistic missile threat was was inbound.

The warning read:

Emergency Alert
BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER.  THIS IS NOT A DRILL.

The warning was issued on television and to mobile phones.

However it is apparently a false alarm with Hawaii EMA and Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard issuing notices that the warning was accidentally issued.

“There is no missile threat,” Lt. Commander Joe Nawrocki, a spokesperson for North American Aerospace Defense Command, told BuzzFeed News. “We’re trying to figure out where this came from or how this started. There is absolutely no incoming ballistic missile threat to Hawaii right now.”
