1636 cheesecrystal My mother in law who hates to travel, hates to leave home, woke up in Hawaii for the first day of her vacation today. I think this is probably her last vacation.
5899 oricoson My buddy is in Hawaii on vacation and he just texted the group chat “See ya later fellas”
4463 Blastgirl69 My mom called me, she lives in Ewa Beach. I missed the call, she sends a text saying a missile is hitting Hawaii and she wanted to let me know she loves me. I went online and saw that it was a mistake, I called her back and the warning was still on the tv. I could hear it in the background. I found out it was a false alarm faster on Social Media (Twitter) from the Dept of Defense than they did over there.
2646 beefchafe I live in Hawaii! And it was the most terrifying experiences of my life. I was at a friends house with a bunch of other guests. Our phones went off in unison with the civil defense tone, all capital letters saying “BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. THIS IS NOT A DRILL. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER.” I had to sprint outside to stop my brother from leaving for work with a car full of people. We ran inside, frantically closing all our windows and doors. Everyone was calling their parents and crying. I was shaking. My parents were getting ready to climb into a cave on our property. And the worst part? My sister in Texas knew it was a mistake before us! She was the one that texted my family. The second emergency alert declaring it a drill wasn’t sent until at least 20 minutes after the first. We got the news from Twitter.
1940 aJan_ Hawaii resident here. Woke up two hours after said alert. Was really confused about what my text messages were about. I take solace in the fact I would have died peacefully in my sleep.
2779 [deleted] I was playing some Fortnite and got this notification on my phone. I heard it going off and slowly grabbed my phone, wondering what kind of weather alert it could be (it's a beautiful day today) I initially read about an incoming missile, and my heart sinks, but I assume it's a test, until I get to the end. "THIS IS NOT A TEST , SEEK SHELTER IMMEDIATELY". Immediate panic. I started pacing around my apartment, trying to quickly google "ballistic missile" to see if i could find any info or if my phone had been hacked (or like a weird spam message popup). Immediately called my mom just to tell her that there is a missile incoming and to just be on the phone with her while it happens. Man....that really got the juices flowing on this sleepy saturday morning. Jeesh.
9241 seriesofstraws It was complete chaos here for about 20 minutes. I immediately left work and drove about 10 mins home and the roadways were crazy. Complete disregard for any traffic law whatsoever. People going 100+ in 45mph zones, running red lights, driving on the wrong side of the road - absolute chaos like nothing I've seen before. When I got home my family was huddled downstairs in the garage storage area (kinda underground) crying hysterically. I called 911 and they confirmed it was a mistake but we didn't get a txt msg confirming it was a mistake till about 30 minutes after the initial "THIS IS NOT A DRILL."
7892 NIAD_SIRDNE I cannot wait for the TIFU by sending Hawaii into a nuclear panic
4411 HoagieTime All the people in Hawaii who made a new year's resolution to quit smoking are going to have a massvive cheat day
7982 TooShiftyForYou 38 minutes to correct this error seems like a long time to fear imminent death.
1494 NotYourAverageBubba Was in the video intro to the Pearl Harbor tour entitled (ish) "Why We Went To War." Possibly the most hilariously awful timing of anything in my life. Marines ordered us to stay inside, Navy personnel were freaking out harder than most of the people. We had to remind some other tourists that we were currently in a sunken, steel-reinforced structure on a military installation and that we're in a pretty good spot. Am now drinking heavily in a nearby bar and everything tastes DELICIOUS EDIT: words
11737 lococommotion I’m here on a school trip. There were people running from the beach and crying and calling their families. I still am feeling the adrenaline! What a major fuck up.
3442 Udontlikecake Well at least we know that button actually works -some guy at NORAD probably
13825 2112xanadu My aunt called me to say her goodbyes. She said everyone at their hotel was screaming and running through the hallways. What a massive fuckup.
3716 secretevidence Active military. First thought was "Where's the safest place to take my wife right now" Second was "Oh shit, if I don't die right now I'm going to war" Hell of a way to start the day. My blood pressure still isn't back down to baseline.
15195 RedwSmoke There's someone sitting in a fully stocked underground bunker that's going to be pissed when they come out in 30 years to check radiation levels.
14823 going_mobile The worst part was realizing how unprepared we were. My roommates and I woke up to the alarm and just sat there not knowing what we’re supposed to do in this situation.
5857 drfeelokay I learned learned 2 things from this false alarm 1. Why our parents are all so fucked up 2. My nuclear survival strategy is to drink a bunch of lukewarm soju
3169 kkaallaaee Was driving past Pearl Harbor when I got the alert. Noped the fuck out of there so hard.
18601 dawkbrook "So, why did you leave your last job?" "I caused a mass panic that ignited fears of a nuclear annihilation. And the department was downsizing. It was mostly the downsizing."
1800 matt2dlg People were literally putting their kids in storm drains. Next level fuck up
4079 wonkierbooble 2018 seems to be going smoothly, I see.
4323 Thatonedude25 This should not be taken lightly. You had an entire state in a state of panic. People could have been injured or even died if the issue wasn’t resolved quickly.
1417 rottedzombie Just got out of the bathtub. Huddled with the wife and toddler until the all-clear. I promised myself I'd die wearing clean underwear. Not like this. Also: the warning sirens did not go off at any point, which gave us hope. Still terrifying. And: False alarm alert pushed -- https://m.imgur.com/QV0QXE3 -- also showing up on our television.
1096 InnsmouthBear What do you think the chances are someone is hiding in a bunker in Hawaii right now unaware it was a false alarm?
