"This system we have been told to rely upon failed and failed miserably today", said in a written statement. There was a lot of unnecessary pain and anxiety. He was still "a little freaked out" and feeling paranoid even after hearing it was a false alarm.

Hawaii U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz tweeted the false alarm was "totally inexcusable" and was caused by human error. Gen. Joe Logan were on hand for a press conference at Civil Defense at Diamond Head Saturday following the false alarm issued of a missile launch on Hawaii.

Given the current state of global relations, particularly with North Korea, it's hard to imagine how a simple human error could have resulted in such a major alert.

FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr said in a statement Saturday afternoon that the FCC would fully investigate why the initial message was sent and was left uncorrected for almost 40 minutes, sending residents into a panic.

"BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII", the message read.

"There's a checklist that is in place so that should have been followed, and I'm going to find out why it wasn't or what happened", he said.

"We tried to turn on the radio, it was relaying the same info - but then regular broadcasts took over". And within five minutes it was like a ghost town. "Haha glad to know we'll all be safe".

People in Hawaii woke up to a terrifying emergency alert sent to iPhones and other devices that officials now say was sent in error.

"If it was real, we would have been gone already", he said.

The White House said President Donald Trump, who is in Florida, was briefed on the false alert. "The warning was a mistake", he told CNN.

In December, Hawaii tested its nuclear warning siren for the first time since the end of the Cold War. "What my family went through and what so many families in Hawaii just went through is a true realization that they have 15 minutes to seek some form of shelter or else they're dead - gone", she told the network.

The Hawaii Emergency Management Agency sought to calm nerves soon after the accidental alarm. It was back up by about 9:30 a.m.

State of Hawaii emergency management officials trigger an emergency alert that reads: "BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII".

The FCC has begun a full investigation into the FALSE missile alert in Hawaii.
