Ballistic Missile Threat to Hawaii Isn't Inconceivable

Residents in Hawaii got a warning Saturday morning about an inbound ballistic missile.

It turned out to be a false alarm, but a threat like that isn't totally out of the question.

Screenshots of  the emergency alert started pouring in on Twitter with some speculating it was an accident or the result of a hack.

Officials said the alert was the result of  human error .

The North claims it has a missile capable of " striking the whole " U.S. mainland.

And Hawaii isn't taking any chances when it comes to the Hermit Kingdom.

The state  updated its missile attack  preparedness plan last year.

Hawaii also recently started  conducting tests  of its nuclear attack siren for the first time since the end of the Cold War.
