Accidental Ballistic Missile Phone Alert In Hawaii Has Citizens Spooked

Imagine, if you will, that your life pans out differently than it has, and you are living, working, and growing old on the island paradise of Hawaii.

The tranquility and the camaraderie of the island chain American state has lent itself to a number of scenic daydreams in the continental U.S., where most of us are forced to endure “seasons” and “cold weather”.  Hawaii is often seen as the ultimate goal, whether that goal be for a lavish escape, a comfortable retirement, or a vocational vacation.

Now, thanks to the westernmost U.S. state’s proximity to North Korea, there are growing concerns about Hawaii’s susceptibility to attack by Kim Jong Un’s forces.

Today, those fears were put to the test, as an accidental but horrifying alert was sent via official channels to the cell phones of many Hawaiians.

“Panic spread through the state of Hawaii on Saturday morning when residents received an alert on their phones warning of a ballistic missile threat that was accidentally sent out by Civil Defense.

“Scores of confused residents tweeted screenshots of the warnings after receiving them shortly after 8am local time.

“Hawaii is on the flight path between North Korea and the US. Saturday’s warning comes after months of nerve-inducing intercontinental ballistic missile tests by Kim Jong Un.

“The alert was written all in block capitals, read: ‘BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. ‘

Twitter reacted in real time, with many user fearing for their lives.

Luckily for all involved, there was a mistake made during a training exercise in the Civil Defense department and the alert was sent incorrectly.

Given the very real threat of nuclear ambush by a thoroughly mad Kim Jong Un, there is no telling the damage that would be done should the impish dictator put his finger on the button in the near future.
