Breaking: SECOND ALARM Goes Off Warning North Korea Launched Ballistic Missiles

Hawaiian officials scared the the hell out of residents on Saturday morning after a text message was sent out to cellphone users alerting them of an incoming ballistic missile.

The alert was reportedly repeated on television broadcasts.
Sirens went off.

It turned out to be be bogus.

Hawaii has been on edge this year over North Korea’s threats to nuke the United States that have been backed up by missile and nuclear bomb tests.

It’s not just Hawaii.
Japanese officials sent out a false North Korea missile alert on Tuesday.

Via CNN:

Japanese national broadcaster NHK issued an on-air apology Tuesday after issuing an alert incorrectly claiming that North Korea had launched a ballistic missile.

The message, received by phone users with the NHK app installed on their devices, read: “NHK news alert. North Korea likely to have launched missile. The government J alert: evacuate inside the building or underground. ”

The broadcaster apologized for the error, adding “the news alert sent earlier about NK missile was a mistake. No government J alert was issued.” The mistake was corrected within minutes.
