On Saturday the people of Hawaii got an emergency alert notification claiming a “ballistic missile threat inbound to Hawaii.” Even though it was a false alarm, it sure did cause concern on social media.

The message was sent to some mobiles from the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency. There was a second text to confirm that it was a false alarm.. but that second text came almost 40 minutes later.

40 minutes leaves a lot of room for panic.
