False missile warning sent Hawaii residents into full-blown panic

Los Angeles Times

A false emergency message warning Hawaii residents of an incoming ballistic missile sent people scrambling in panic Saturday.

The alert, which was sent to cellphones and appeared on television, asked people to "seek immediate shelter" and added, “This is not a drill.”

Reaction quickly spread across social media, with people seeking answers to what state emergency officials declared was a false alarm.
