Missile false alarm causes panic for PGA Tour players

Nawrocki referred requests for information to Hawaii's Emergency Management Agency, where a representative also told BuzzFeed News the message was a false alarm.

The alert urged residents to take shelter, and said the alert was not a drill.

Gabbard, a Democrat, blamed President Donald Trump, who was at his Florida golf club on Saturday, for what she said was a failure to take the threat of North Korea seriously. "It was a false alarm based on a human error".

As state officials quickly worked to address the mistake, the White House released a statement in which it appeared to distance itself from the situation in Hawaii.

THIS is the terrifying moment Tottenham's clash with Everton was interrupted on live TV in Hawaii by a missile heading towards the island.

"AGAIN FALSE ALARM", he wrote in a second tweet.

The alert was a false alarm, the Hawaii's United States senators said on Twitter as they rushed to tamp down the hysteria that ensued. "There is no threat to Maui County from ballistic missiles at this time".

Worldwide PC shipments declined 2% in 4Q17: Gartner
IT and International Data Corporation ("IDC") - yesterday reported worldwide PC shipment data for the fourth quarter of 2017. Outside of the US, Lenovo made solid gains growing 3.9% on year with solid notebook shipments during the quarter.

The alert, issued shortly after 8 A.M. local time (1800 GMT), was sent mistakenly some three hours before the start of the third round of the PGA Tour's Sony Open.

A nail biting message to the public said: "The US Pacific threat has detected a missile threat to Hawaii".

One woman called 911 in panic and said she was told by the operator that staff were performing a drill when "someone pushed the wrong buttons". "There needs to be tough and quick accountability and a fixed process".

"From a NORAD perspective and that of the U.S. Northern Command, we are still trying to verify what happened", he said of the false alert. There is nothing more important to Hawai'i than professionalizing and fool-proofing this process. Even though the state says almost 93 percent of the state's 386 sirens worked properly, 12 mistakenly played an ambulance siren. Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai said on social media the panel would launch an investigation. The follow up message indicated this was a false alarm.

After the alert was declared an error, many decried the fact that such an incredible error was allowed to happen.

North Korea has tested a volley of ballistic missiles over the last few years, and has repeatedly threatened the US with nuclear conflict.
