Students Run for Shelter at the University of Honolulu at Manoa

Ballistic Missile warning

Though the message stumped the internet in a few minutes, the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency quickly responded on Twitter, saying, "NO missile threat to Hawaii".

The alert sent people scrambling for shelters, overloaded cell phones services and crashed the Hawaii Emergency Management's website, Hawaii News Now reported.

Earlier Saturday, Hawaii Governor David Ige confirmed their was never an actual missile threat and the false alarm was not the work of hackers or a foreign government.

Officials in the country quickly ruled out hacking and have said that human error was to blame during a routine test of its systems during a shift change. "There is no missile threat or danger to the State of Hawaii", to reach Hawaiian smartphones.

FCC chairman Ajit Pai says his agency will also investigate how the alert message was sent.

It is unclear at this time how or why the original emergency message was sent out.

Williams' daughter in Evansville was the first person to tell her that the alert was a mistake.

After months of heightened nuclear tensions between the USA and North Korea, frightened people scrambled for safety and communications were bogged down.

Hawaii began conducting a monthly test of outdoor emergency sirens in December after North Korea stepped up its missile and nuclear programs, test-firing ballistic missiles over Japan into the Pacific past year.

Pristelski said at 8:07 a.m., local time, on Saturday the alert came across on her iPhone. "State of Hawaii will send out a correction message as soon as possible", Benham said.

HollywoodLifers, were you surprised about the false ballistic missile alarm in Hawaii? People on the islands and their families back here could do nothing but wait and say goodbye. "I'm extremely angry right now", said Hawaii State Rep Matt LoPresti, describing for CNN the panic that ensued following the alert.
