FCC chairman: False Hawaii missile alert 'absolutely unacceptable'

It read: "There is no missile threat or danger to the State of Hawaii".

"I was thinking North Korea has done did it".

The mistaken alert stated: "EMERGENCY ALERT BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII". They had to wait almost 40 minutes to learn the alert was a false alarm.

Hawaiians described panic when they got the emergency alert Saturday morning on television, radio, email and mobile devices.

Schatz went on his Twitter account after emergency management officials confirmed the push alert was a mistake, calling for accountability and an alert process that is foolproof.

"When we had lunch the employees and our server totally admitted that they are not ready for this at all; nobody has a plan of action", he said.

Charles River Laboratories Intl
Smith David Ross also sold $171,228 worth of Charles River Laboratories International, Inc. (NYSE:CRL) rating on Tuesday, June 13. Equities research analysts forecast that Charles River Laboratories International, Inc. will post $4.47 EPS for the current year.


The chair of the US Federal Communications Commission Ajit Pai said there would be a full investigation into the incident. "We texted our family members and told them if this was true, we love you", said Williams. "Everyone is freaking out in the hotel", with a screenshot from his smartphone showing the emergency alert.

According to the head of the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency, Vern Miyagi, the wrong button was pushed during what was supposed to be a test of a ballistic missile warning system early Saturday morning.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard spoke candidly to CNN's "State of the Union" about the message - apparently caused by an employee hitting the wrong button - that jolted Hawaiians awake and sent some running for cover.

But this alert was a fake and a whopping 38-minutes later, state officials finally issued an official correction message.

"The two of us we weren't quite sure how to end our conversation because I didn't know if I would be talking with her again", Miriam said. They are calling for more answers as to how this message could have been sent in the first place. "You know, we did what we could... and I am very angry right now because it shouldn't be this easy to make such a big mistake".

Meanwhile, Boulanger says this does not change her outlook on her life in Hawaii and is thankful no one was hurt.
