BREAKING: HAWAII WARNED OF INBOUND NUCLEAR MISSILE

Residents of Hawaii woke up to a terrifying text message on Saturday warning of an imminent missile attack on their state.

“Ballistic missile threat inbound to Hawaii. Seek shelter immediately. This is not a drill,” the warning read. The Daily Beast reported that the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency quickly tweeted out a follow up saying that there is “no missile threat” to the area after news of the alerts had flooded Twitter.

“This is a false alarm. There is no incoming missile to Hawaii,” tweeted Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii.

Hawaii has been on high alert for a nuclear attack in recent months due to the rising tensions between the U.S. and North Korea. It is not yet known at this time why the fake alert went out today.
