Japan public TV sends mistaken North Korean missile alert

Hawaii endured a now-famous false alarm on Saturday. The alarm this time was about an inbound ballistic missile not a tsunami. Ridicule of Hawaii’s system and management followed quickly validating the cliché that no good deed goes unpunished. Hawaii

Hawaii endured a now-famous false alarm on Saturday. The alarm this time was about an inbound ballistic missile not a tsunami. Ridicule of Hawaii’s system and management followed quickly validating the cliché that no good deed goes unpunished. Hawaii

Signal carriers allow people to block alerts from state and law enforcement agencies, but not those issued by the president. In McDonald County, the emergency management system uses a texting service that can send an immediate update to residents.

In the Hawaiian case, human error was to blame.

The PEMA director says such a mistake is unlikely to happen in Pennsylvania.

Ige also tweeted that he is meeting with top defense and emergency management officials from the state "to determine what caused this morning's false alarm and to prevent it from happening again".

The state warning officer who accidentally sent a bogus alert about a missile attack on Hawaii has received dozens of death threats, according to his supervisor.

"You determine, Do you want to send this to cell phone users?"

Hawaii is the only state that is set up to send cellphone alerts about the threat of an incoming ballistic missile. Officials took almost 40 minutes to notify the public about the false alarm, leading many to question what took so long to send out a correction.

Since Saturday afternoon, Miyagi confirmed that Hi-EMA will now require a two-person verification to send alerts and launch real missile alerts. With a lack of diplomatic progress thus far with the Kim Jong-un regime, both sides have increased military presence in the region.

"Everybody stood their post", Chief Neves said.

Since then, people have discovered that a photo taken in Hawaii's Emergency Management Agency for a news article in July includes a sticky note with a password.

The computer menu design behind the accidental missile alert that caused chaos across Hawaii Saturday has been revealed. That being said, DRILL should be reasonably clear. "We need to help them, too".

FEMA will launch an after-action review, while the Federal Communications Commission is spearheading a public safety investigation.

Walden, who has spoken to Pai about the probe, said the government needed "to make sure our technologies and processes are up to date".

House Speaker Scott Saiki told reporters he expects more information about what happened to emerge over the next couple of weeks.

What will state officials do now?

The alert was issued at approximately 8:07 a.m.

For others, though, life went on because they didn't receive the warning.

"Today is a day that most of us will never forget".

"This had the potential for being totally catastrophic", Hirono said.
