I'm actually a student at the university in Honolulu. We had a campus-wide alert that went out at 8:00am local time, and students were running to the one bomb shelter on campus; which turns out to just be a lecture hall with non-reinforced doors, and no reserve water/medical supplies. For about 30 mins no one knew what was going to happen; only a few phone services were working at the time too, so other students/faculty weren't able to call loved ones or get any news or updates. Really highlighted how truly unprepared we, as an island, are for any kind of serious nuclear threat.
A lot of preppers going in their bunkers not to be seen in several decades
True it wasn't a drill. It was however a mistake.
I'm curious about the reaction at Honolulu International Airport. Passengers arriving, leaving. If pilots and ATC were aware, etc.
Looks like someone edited the audio over a Viagra commercial.
What the hell, how in gods fuck does something like that get "Accidentally Announced" or triggered. If that shit happened in Florida my ass would be getting on my boat and heading way the fuck out to sea. I would think that would be my safest place. As long as I have my weed and family I am good.
Someone's getting fired today.
I don't live in Hawaii, so quick question... if you weren't watching TV at the time, did they communicate the emergency any other ways?
Edit: disregard... there were smartphone alerts too.
Well USA can get along with 49 states anyhow, wait we still got peurto rico
