Hawaii Gets False Alert About Incoming Ballistic Missile

People in Hawaii  got an emergency alert Saturday  warning them about an incoming ballistic missile.

It was a false alarm.

The alert didn't contain many details.

It instructed people to seek shelter and noted "this is not a drill." Almost immediately people on Twitter speculated the alert was a mistake or the result of a hack.

Hawaii's Emergency Management Agency  tweeted there is no missile threat to the islands.

It's unclear why the alert went out.
