On the morning of 13 January the people of Hawaii sent out false notifications about the threat of missile attack, reports the local Internet edition of Hawaii 24/7.

They said that you should immediately hide in the shelter.

“This is not a doctrine,” – noted in the notification.

The warning is also disseminated on television.

A few minutes later the residents sent out a new notice, which said that the error occurred.

“A false alarm. There is no threat. A warning went off accidentally”, – noted in them.

The emergency management Agency of Hawaii has confirmed on Twitter that there’s no threat.

NO missile threat to Hawaii.

The BBC reports that in December 2017 at Hawaii for the first time since the end of the cold war tested the notification system in the event of a missile strike. This happened against the background of growing threats from North Korea.
