Breaking News

Someone or something messed up BIG TIME and sent an emergency alert to phones of Hawaii residents saying there was a ballistic missile threat inbound, but fortunately ... it was a major false alarm.

A little after 8AM in Hawaii, people's phones starting going off with the alert, and this is what they saw:

Yikes. Despite saying "This is not a drill," Hawaii emergency officials have confirmed there is no missile threat and the alert was sent as a mistake.

A follow-up message was sent to Hawaii residents -- albeit 40 minutes later -- to let them know the message was a false alarm.
