    Was that one a false alarm or a planned test of their emergency warning system?

    Nothing more than a transparent attempt to smear Trump, since Obummer did nothing about NK nukes, Trumps fault. Wonder which Trump hater was responsible? 5 minutes is a mistake, not 40.

    Don't recall. Maybe it was a test and lots of people didn't realize it at the time.

    I remember Hawaii conducting a test of their warning system about the same time Little Kim was threatening Guam.

    False incoming ICBM alarm alarms Hawaiians...

    US Homeland Security Chief Vows to Correct Hawaii's Missile Alert System
    January 14, 2018 - U.S. Homeland Security Chief Kirstjen Nielsen said Sunday it was "unfortunate" there was a false emergency alarm about an incoming missile in Hawaii, but said authorities are "all working to make sure it doesn’t happen again."
    Officials continued to investigate the circumstances surrounding the Saturday incident in which residents of the western-most U.S. state, in the Central Pacific, were erroneously sent emergency alerts on television, radio, email and mobile devices that warned: "BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL." Just a few weeks ago, Hawaii reinstated its Cold War-era alarm sirens amid growing fears of nuclear aggression by North Korea. Authorities blamed Saturday's incident on human error.


    A screen capture from a Twitter account shows a missile warning for Hawaii, Jan. 13, 2018, in this picture obtained from social media.

    Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard told CNN, "The fact that these processes failed so epically that caused this trauma, caused this terror all across the state of Hawaii, must be fixed immediately, and those responsible for this happening need to be held accountable." Gabbard said it "was unacceptable that this happened, but it really highlights the stark reality the people of Hawaii are facing" in being the U.S. state closest to North Korea at a time when North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump have traded months of insults over Pyongyang's nuclear weapons development program and its frequent test missile launches.


    Diamond Head, an extinct volcanic crater, and high-rises are seen in Honolulu

    Hawaii Gov. David Ige said the false missile alert that panicked islanders Saturday morning was "totally unacceptable" and told reporters he is "angry and disappointed" by the situation. "Today is a day that most of us will never forget — a day when many in our community thought that our worst nightmares might actually be happening," he said. Questioned repeatedly by reporters about how such a mistake could happen, the governor said his administration is doing everything possible to make sure it does not happen again. Vern Miyagi, administrator of Hawaii's Emergency Management Administration, told reporters that the person responsible for the erroneous message "feels terrible" about it. Told by reporters that emergency sirens had actually gone off in some communities, Miyagi said he would have to look into the matter.

    I have heard the room where their emergency response is handled from is cramped and that is what led to the problem. I would suggest two separate terminals, one for tests and another for the real thing.

    Rid the entire staff of anti-Trumpers.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.
