Saturday in Hawaii

Recommended Posts

Was it really 38 minutes before they rescinded the alert???

From what I've heard, an email was sent out 18 min. after the initial warning, and a text was sent out 38 min. after the initial warning. Crazy thing is, you would typically only have 12-13 min. of warning in case of a real threat. That's not very much time...

'Seek immediate shelter' Right! With a nuclear missile headed your way?

 

 

 

To be technically accurate,  there was nothing that stipulated they were nukes.  Ballistic missiles don't have to contain a nuclear payload.  Ballistic is really about its trajectory.

Yes, we were in the dark about the whole thing for about 30 minutes or so frantically searching online for updates. One of our house reps tweeted that it was not legit. Our entire emergency broadcast system was an epic fail, I had to turn to Reddit for up to the minute details. They said an ICBM would take about 12 minutes to reach us, so we could've been goners if it were real.

 

TBH though, I don't think it's worth it for KJU to hit Hawaii, it's a low value target considering his entire country will probably be deleted from the globe if he were to attack the US.

Apparently someone pushed a wrong button during a shift change or something like that.

 

"Whoops! Meant to hit logout, instead sent out an incoming ballistic missile alert. I'm having a real case of the Mondays!"

“Oops, Sorry my bad”. Doesn't cut it.

I sure hope so, South Korea would be a island if anything ever happened.

So I just read a news update:

 

"On Saturday officials knew within three minutes that the error happened, but it took 38 minutes for the message to be sent out by the Emergency Alert System because that button was not programmed and in place."

 

They hadn't thought about programming a cancel button??? WTF? I'll bet ya that lawyers get into this one real quick. Lawsuits for the pain and anguish that mistake cost.
