Hawaii Officials quit over false missile alert

Two top official civilian officials from Hawaii’s Emergency Management Agency have resigned over sending of a false incoming missile alert. The 13th of January message led to widespread panic that took 38 minutes to correct. Governor David Ige admitted he could not correct the warning as he had forgotten his twitter login. The mix-up occured after the midnight supervisor at Hawaii Emergency Management Agency decided to conduct a spontaneous missile drill during a day shift transition. The incoming day supervisor was unaware of the drill. Believing it was real they sent out a genuine alert using the agency’s software. Administer Vern Miyagi and executive producer Toby Clairmont have since stepped down.
