Japan tells public broadcaster not to repeat false missile alert

It is estimated that a ballistic missile would take about 20 minutes to reach Hawaii from North Korea.

Hawaii officials apologised and said the alert was sent when someone hit the live alert button instead of a test button during a shift change.

The state said part of the delay in sending the retraction was because they were awaiting FEMA approval. "Here's hoping Hawaiian officials take full advantage of that assistance, that they hold themselves to full account, and that every other official of every other state uses this frightful mistake to do some introspection of their own", Kirby wrote.

"We didn't want to pile one mistake on top of another", Rapoza said.

An agency spokesman, Richard Rapoza, told Hawaii News Now that the password is authentic and was used for an "internal application".

After 38 long minutes, terrified residents learned the alert was sent out in error.

Maybe by being forced - even through a false alarm - to contemplate the bitter end, we can begin to see a way to craft a new beginning.

Green says this lengthy process makes it unlikely for them to accidentally "push the button", but there's always a chance for false alerts to pop up regardless.

Sean Shields, 51, began "violently" throwing up while on the island of Oahu Saturday, his girlfriend, Brenda Reichel, told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.

Bornemann says she gives the final say before the alert is sent.

U.S. Sen Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, said it's clear that human error initiated the false alert.

But she worries that system failures allowed it to go uncorrected for too long, almost 40 minutes. A day when many in our community thought our worst nightmare might actually be happening", Ige said, adding "I know first-hand that what happened today was totally unacceptable, and many in our community was deeply affected by this.

MAUI Gillian Dorn was in Hawaii during the false missile crisis, something that she hopes "does not happen again".

"Clearly, government agencies are not prepared and lack the capacity to deal with emergency situations", he said in a statement. The operator was supposed to click on a drill but set off the ballistic missile alert on Saturday. Gen. Kenneth Hara, is underway.

Japan is also stepping up its missile intercepting capabilities and conducting missile drills across the country in which residents, including schoolchildren and elderly people, rush to community centers, cover their heads and duck down to the floor.
