    If there was a launch, it would have flown over Japan and they would have noticed. So would South Korea who has a vested interest in these things. Someone would have said something, so I think it was a mistake, hack, space debris etc, but not an ICBM. Unless that "satellite" that NK put up was coming down.

    Don't know why I think that because we have the Pacific Missile Range Facility at Barking Sands on Kauai.

    If your ever on Kauai, just pm me, I might be on island at my place. V

    Very revealing is that it took 38 minutes for an "official" retraction of the incoming missile threat alert.

    Also revealing is the hopelessly lame excuse that somebody, during a shift change, pressed the wrong button.

    With little real information at this early juncture, I'll just think out loud for a moment,

    - Since when do people come in on a new shift and just start pushing a bunch of buttons?

    - Why didn't this "button" have a physical cover or physical or electronic lock that would preclude accidently bumping that stupid button?

    - Why would anyone in a non-supervisory, non-responsible capacity even have access to such a button?

    - Why wouldn't at least two people have to agree to initiating a ballistic missile warning?

    - Why didn't the outdoor warning sirens sound in a supposedly integrated warning system?

    - Were all areas alerted or was the warning system unable to all residents, at the same, in a timely fashion?

    Something is definitely rotten in Denmark and it is not the cheese.

    Yep!

    And one really important thing about not wanting to scare the public is that Hawaii's number one industry is Tourism.

    Defense being number 2 as a large part of it's economy.

    Soooo....

    "If" an ICBM was incoming and we took it out, why tell the public and scare them into vacation dollars somewhere else?

    That'd be Really bad for Hawaii's economy.

    You don't want to scare off the people who want to spend their hard earned money wanting to visit the islands. And I'm speaking about people from many other countries. V

    When were you in Denver?

    [QUOTE=Melodi;6733961]

    I still remember standing in the hallway of my downtown Denver office screaming at people who were just standing near the windows watching THREE tornados bounce down the road and having one say "oh don't worry, they would warn us if we were really in danger."

    QUOTE]

    When were you in Denver - we were there in 1985-1989. Wife was standing on the walkway in front of our apartment (I was at work) watching 3 tornadoes all within a mile of her at once (I think that was in either 88 or 89). Our apt manager made everyone head down to the laundry room.

    Are you on cable or direct antenna for that station?
    A local Broadcast station will insert the warning over their normal programming. You will continue to see that channel after the alert.
    Some cable companies, because of the cost of all the extra equipment to insert over all the non-broadcast channels, will force your cable box to change to a specified channel that will carry the alert. The cable box might not return to the previous channel. Could this be what you saw?

    I think we'd know if Kim fired a missile in very short time. Too many other nations would see it and broadcast the news. But if he did, and we took it out, they would delay the announcement. Food for thought...

    If nork wanted to nuke us, now would be the perfect time. Can you imagine: everybody being pissed off about this false alarm, then another one comes out... everybody would just say aww, that's just another false alarm, keep doing what you are doing. But I mean really, how many people really had an emergency plan and implemented it.

    This is how you check "Other" sources....check Japanese and South Korea if you get an alert.

    The timing, shortly after the hour, is right for a test. TV doesn’t usually have commercials at that time, so no loss of revenue.
    The EAS unit I worked with could not originate real alerts, would only relay what was received from local radio station or weather/NWS receiver. I don’t know about the originator here, but I doubt if two people are required or even on site on a normal day. As far as trust/supervisor, if you can’t trust them to do it right themselves, they should not be working there.
    I can see re-education camp in the entire staff’s future.

    I am not believing the current version of a State issued Emergency Drill that the wrong button was pushed. Our military went to General Quarters. I don't think they take orders from the civilian government of Hawaii.

    NORAD can detect a launch within seconds and can predict its course shortly there after. Within a couple of minutes all systems are alerted and incoming is being plotted. That information would place our military anti ballistic missile system at ready. Information from a local civil defense drill can not do this. The locals would notify our military they are doing a drill but they would not have command over them.

    I think I will side with summerthyme and treat this as a defcon4 anal whiplash. Be sure you are prepped up and stand by for the STHTF until we hear officially from POTUS otherwise. Rocket Boys time is coming fast.

    Hawaii has their test on the first business day of each month now beginning in December 2017.

    Maybe all this is another way to desensitize the public to facilitate beating the war drums prior to attacking North Korea?

    Much like the domestic terror "drills" conducted in American cities.

    Given how unacceptable today's situation is, I'm not ruling anything out right now.

    the rumormill is going off the charts, am reading from a couple discussion threads that locals think it was an intercepted sub launch ?

    Yep, probably the same ones -if you look in the Unexplained archives, you will see I dreamed the whole event years before; except in the dream the tornados did destroy a lot of downtown Denver and I had to walk home through the rubble - thankfully in real life they bounced down the mall and then destroyed a few trees in the tiny parklet that was at the end of it.

    I don't remember the year but it was probably 1988 because I only worked in that office for about a year and then moved in the Spring of 1989 back to California - I lived in Denver from part of 1982 to about May of 1989.

    The line about "oh they will tell us if we are really in danger" had also been in the dream, but I really couldn't believe it when an idiot actually said it while watching the things snake in front of the building.

    Husband says the reports of people either putting themselves or their children in the sewer were actually doing exactly the right thing under the circumstances and that short of a "direct hit on top of them" might have saved lives it the alarm had been a real one.

    He also felt that anyone who did this, especially the kids; should at least be checked out by a GP to make sure they hadn't contacted anything but that was a small price to pay to possibly living through a nuclear attack.

    Hawaii emergency alert error causes panic, outrage

    1 hour ago
    By Nicole Darrah | Fox News

    An emergency alert that warned of a ballistic missile heading directly for Hawaii on Saturday, which was mistakenly sent out, caused panic and outrage among celebrities, politicians, vacationers and locals.

    Sent around 8 a.m., the alert, sent from the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency, read: "BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL." It took the agency 38 minutes to send a follow-up alert correcting the error.

    Fox News' Greg Gutfeld said on Twitter that his wife, who was at a hotel when she received the alert, said there was "total hysteria/chaos. families evacuating told to seek a shelter. crying panic."

    Actor Jim Carrey tweeted that he "woke up this morning in Hawaii with ten minutes to live. It was a false alarm, but a real psychic warning."

    Actress Jamie Lee Curtis blamed the false alert on President Trump, tweeting: "The real FEAR that mothers & fathers & children felt is on YOU. It is on YOUR ARROGANCE. HUBRIS. NARCISSISM. RAGE. EGO. IMMATURITY and your UNSTABLE IDIOCY."

    Sen. Mazie Hironi, D-Hawaii, tweeted that she would work to find out why the alert was sent out.

    Jane Bartlett Pappas, whose brother Alex Pappas is a reporter with Fox News, is on the island of Oahu and while she received an alert on her phone, no alarm system actually went off on the island.

    Pappas added she didn't receive a notification that it was false "until 30-40 minutes after the initial alert. I saw people getting into their cars and running across the street." She also added that the beach is now "crowded with people swimming and enjoying the beautiful day!"

    Hawaii Gov. David Ige said in a statement that "While I am thankful this morning’s alert was a false alarm, the public must have confidence in our emergency alert system. I am working to get to the bottom of this so we can prevent an error of this type in the future."

    He added he's meeting with top officials to figure out whay the alarm went off "and to prevent it from happening again."

    Rep. Tusli Gabbard, D-Hawaii, who sent out one of the first tweets warning that the emergency alert was not accurate, later tweeted that "Everyone in American needs to understand that if you had to go through this, you would be as angry as I am - I have been talking about the seriousness of this threat for years."

    "Our leaders have failed us for decades" Gabbard noted, and added that Trump "is taking too long, needs to take North Korea's "threat seriously," and that "we have to talk to North Korea and find a peaceful path to get rid of this nuclear threat."

    Twitter user @brynguist wrote the time after she received the emergency alert "were the most terrifying of my life, until I finally checked twitter and saw this."

    Jill N. Tokuda, a Democratic member of the state's Senate, tweeted that she "saw soccer parents running off the field in fear; my boys & nieces are still very shaken."

    Summerthyme - I was thinking the same thing.

    Maybe we don't want a knee jerk reaction..if we shot it down - we can continue to prepare knowing NK is more than serious about attacking us.

    Could it have been a missile launched from a sub and we are trying to figure out which country to blame? NK, China, Russia?

    Probably tin foil hat on too tight....

    Anyone else?

    Also, could this alert been sent out by accident/human error? I don't know how those systems work, but surely there would have been some sort of immediate feedback to the sender....and phone alerts to others who work there??

    Actor Jim Carrey tweeted that he "woke up this morning in Hawaii with ten minutes to live. It was a false alarm, but a real psychic warning."

    Actress Jamie Lee Curtis blamed the false alert on President Trump, tweeting: "The real FEAR that mothers & fathers & children felt is on YOU. It is on YOUR ARROGANCE. HUBRIS. NARCISSISM. RAGE. EGO. IMMATURITY and your UNSTABLE IDIOCY."

    Maybe we don't want a knee jerk reaction..if we shot it down - we can continue to prepare knowing NK is more than serious about attacking us.

    One of the things (out of many... They DON'T do these tests on a Sunday morning, they didn't catch it and correct it within a few minutes) that really makes me question the official story is the report that our military called General Quarters. AFAIK, they don't give orders based on some crawler in the TV, !

    Rep. Tusli Gabbard, D-Hawaii, who sent out one of the first tweets warning that the emergency alert was not accurate, later tweeted that "Everyone in American needs to understand that if you had to go through this, you would be as angry as I am - I have been talking about the seriousness of this threat for years."

    "Our leaders have failed us for decades" Gabbard noted, and added that Trump "is taking too long, needs to take North Korea's "threat seriously," and that "we have to talk to North Korea and find a peaceful path to get rid of this nuclear threat."


    We are here because the "Peaceful path" is as rare as unicorns. Idiot.

    No tweets from Trump? That's odd.

    It's hard not to think of an attack on a weekend at around 8AM in Hawaii and not think of Sunday, December 7th, 1941 @ 7:55 AM.

    A local Broadcast station will insert the warning over their normal programming. You will continue to see that channel after the alert.
    Some cable companies, because of the cost of all the extra equipment to insert over all the non-broadcast channels, will force your cable box to change to a specified channel that will carry the alert. The cable box might not return to the previous channel. Could this be what you saw?
    As I previously posted, I saw it at Walk n Trot's Zero Hedge link, not on TV.

    I think there's several versions out now, and some of them are jokes.
    So when's the Revolution? God or Money? Choose.

    The Governor and Director of the HI Emergency Management Agency just spoke and took responsibility for this. Well there needs to be accountability for this. A mouse click. a button. Ridiculous. A lot of we don't know why. You're Fired.
