Thousands of terrified Hawaii natives woke up Saturday morning to an emergency alert message on their smartphones stating that there was a ballistic missile threat inbound and to seek shelter immediately.

The alert also stated that it was not a drill. Residents were left completely in the dark of the mistake until 38 minutes after the original warning was sent causing widespread panic. A video on Twitter shows a family placing their children into a storm drain after the false alerts were sent out. Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D) eventually tweeted that the alert was a false alarm and that the state was in no actual danger of an attack.

The situation is especially terrifying given the growing tension between the United States and North Korea as well as concerns about the authoritarian regimes nuclear capabilities.
