Hawaii missile alert false alarm Hawaii missile alert false alarm

HONOLULU (AP) - Hawaii emergency management officials say a push alert that warned of an incoming ballistic missile to Hawaii on Saturday was a mistake.
  
The emergency alert sent to cellphones said in all caps, "Ballistic missile threat inbound to Hawaii. Seek immediate shelter. This is not a drill."
  
Hawaii Emergency Management Agency spokesman Richard Repoza says it's a false alarm.
  
He says the agency is trying to determine what happened.
  
The alert stirred panic for residents on the island and across social media.
