Hawaii warning

Hawaiians have been told that they'll have 20 minutes to seek shelter if a missile were launched from North Korea.

She said she was just going through her phone on Saturday morning when the initial missile alert came in.

Residents and tourists in Hawaii were put in a bomb shelter during a missile scare. Dikilato and her team didn't find out until they took shelter at a nearby shopping center that the sirens were for a ballistic missile, not a tsunami.

"We did have other notification that occurred much, much sooner than that", he said.

Brown also called for $46 million to give community colleges the option to offer one year of free tuition to eligible students. Such a change would likely need to be reflected in the state budget, even though it's meant to be revenue neutral.

Irish professional Seamus Power was similarly perplexed. Meantime in Honolulu, college students were running for their lives. "I, too, am extremely upset about this". Many were scattered across the islands.

A video on social media showed the emergency system interrupting the broadcast of a football match, with a high-pitched sound alerting viewers to their screens which displayed the same warning.

People in the USA state have been sharing stories of momentary frenzy and the panic-stricken messages they exchanged with loved ones after they received the alert.

Sen. Brian Schatz of Hawaii was angry with the mistake. He said he was still in bed when the phone started going off "like insane". "Haha glad to know we'll all be safe".
