Someone accepts reality.

Of course, there are some people who have already done itPreparation for death.

Hawaii State Representative Matt LoPresti said, "I was sitting in the bathtub with my child, we talked a lot, and finally we were praying..."

Jamie Malapit, the owner of the barber shop, said that he sent text messages to all his customers,Canceled appointment, Closed the store door, tidy up everything,Waiting for the last moment.

and alsoOld man sitting in a chair on the beach, Seems to have already seen life and death, still basking in the sun leisurely,As if nothing happened.

A false alarm, the alarm was sent by mistake

However, just when people clenched their hands and hugged together and waited for death; when residents drove away from this terrible city; when people were counting down to commemorate their lives,Another alert message is sent to people's mobile phones!After seeing the content, everyone almost exploded!

Emergency alert:No missile threatens the state of Hawaii.Say it again, before that wasFalse warning.

Wrong warning?Are you funny? !

It turns out that all this isFalse alarm, There is no missile at all, but onceHuman error!

It is reported that after receiving the alert,The Hawaiian military didn’t know what happened., Because they didn’t receive any hint of where to launch the missile.

They contacted defense agencies including the U.S. Pentagon and Pacific Command for the first time, and monitored again. The answer was still:No ballistic missile threat to Hawaii was found!

According to CNN, Hawaii Governor David Ige stated:

"This is a standard procedure in the shiftMistakes made,YesThe employee pressed the wrong button."

As a result, alarms were quickly issued through information channels such as television, radio, and mobile phones, causing people to panic.

It is reported that when people received false alarms, they had already left to escape.Nearly 40 minutes!

And some people even stopped looking at their phones because they escaped, soI never received any more information about the alarm, Still fled the city in a panic.

Helpless, the Hawaiian official isVarious highway crossings, All have the message "alarm error, no threat".

It’s unimaginable that such a big oolong incident happened in a state just because a person pressed the wrong key. This has become a "laughing stock" in the world.Australian media also reported on the matter.

"Daily Mail": "The whole state is in panic": The Hawaii Department of Civil Defense issued a missile threat warning, telling residents to seek asylum immediately, and 37 minutes later, it said that this was a false alarm.

"Australian News Corporation": The U.S. Wrongly Issued Emergency Missile Alerts to Hawaii Residents

"7news": Hawaii accidentally released missile warning information

"9news": Hawaii issued a false missile warning and is under investigation

Subsequently, the Federal Communications Commission of the United States stated that it would definitely investigate this big oolong.But what kind of punishment the responsible person faces is still unclear.

Senator Brian Schatz couldn’t help saying: “For Hawaii, it’s nothing likePrevent misoperationMore important"

After the oolong, the residents were furious and quarreled online

When the residents of Hawaii crawled out of various shelters and sewers, everyone stayed.The gray-headed faces looked at each other, not knowing whether to laugh or to be angry.

At this time, everyone who had experienced a panic and escaped finally came to a sense of relief:What a false alarm,Actually we areWas it played? !

The startled residents were angry:

The error message fermented for a full 37 minutes, and anyone who didn't watch Twitter didn't know it was a false alarm!

"We even thought about the last words to our dear ones!"

"I thought the world above the sewer was gone!"

"Come out and see a piece of An Ran thinking that he has entered heaven!"

The social network exploded like this,The condemning army arrived on the Twitter battlefield in minutes!

"Post a picture to commemorate the painful 37 minutes!"


"Our whole family received the alarm and took the children into the toilet, begging for everything to pass quickly. It's scary!"

"I felt relieved after knowing it was false news. Otherwise, the last thing I did before leaving this world was to buy a movie ticket for one person alone..."

"The family is hiding in the garage. My mother and sister are crying. The alarm is fake, but our panic is real."

"For 40 minutes, everyone thought we were going to die.I received a crit mentally, now I just want to say to everyone I love you."

"No words can express how excited we were when we learned that this was a false alarm! My girlfriend and family are in Hawaii, and the panic is real. Thank God..."

"We need to make sure that the correct information is sent to the public every time.We need to get to the bottom and make sure that this kind of farce does not happen again! ”

A farce,The whole country is in panic.

This oolong soon spread to major media all over the world, which is also a shame.

Australian media "DailyMail》on,The comments are over 2300 fast!


"Did CNN start accusing Trump? If not, wait a few minutes."

"Who made such a big mistake? If he worked for me, he is gone now."

"It was a false alarm. Obviously someone is about to find a new job."

"It must be scary at the time."

"My son is in Hawaii, and he texts that he loves us. Silly boy, terrified me."

"Relevant agencies said this was a mistake. Well, we don't want to hear why this happened, but there are many aspects that need to be vigilant, and this is probably intentional."

This farce also makes people wonder what to say.

I felt sorry for the residents of Hawaii, but fortunately everyone was fine in the end.

The 37 minutes of life and death will probably give them a new understanding of life.
