Japanese public broadcaster says staffer sent missile alert in error

Japanese public broadcaster says staffer sent missile alert in error

The state was slow to contain the situation over the weekend, waiting 23 minutes to call officials at the Federal Emergency Management Agency (Fema) to get approval to send a retraction, approval that was not even necessary, said Fema.

On Tuesday, as part of her joint call with Gabbard for a congressional inquiry into Saturday's false alert, Hanabusa had wondered "to what extent the DOD should have greater control or oversight over military and/or national security emergency alerts issued by state emergency management agencies". Rapoza says the agency's chief of operations is preparing to contact authorities.

Hawaii is the only state in the U.S. with a pre-programmed alert that can be quickly sent to wireless devices to warn of a ballistic missile heading towards the country.

The Honolulu Civil Beat claims to have obtained a picture of the interface used to send out tests and missile alerts to the people of Hawaii, and it's not pretty. Hawaii's Emergency Management Agency has said a worker clicked the wrong item in a drop-down menu and sent it, and that its system was not hacked. Schwartz said. To send a test alert, a MEMA employee has to log off of a live system and log on to another platform.

In case of a real launch, UA Pacific Command would notify Hawaii state officials, who would then activate their warning systems for residents and visitors. The message at top reads: "The flash of North Korea's missile launch was a mistake".

There has never been a national emergency warning sent to mobile devices, radio or television, Fema said.

Ronaldo boost for Real ahead of 'Clasico'
The first EL Grand Clasico of this season's Spanish La Liga between Real and Barca started with both teams going 0-0 at halftime. Real Madrid has had a sputtering start to the La Liga season , while Barcelona is in first place with an undefeated record.

President Donald Trump did not make any public comments about the false alert on Saturday.

"I love that they took responsibility".

In an age where everyone's personal information is digitised and hackers are coming up with clever new scams to get their hands on your bank details, we are constantly reminded to be smarter when using the internet.

Trump acknowledged people's fears.

Then, Hawaii should tentatively aim to have a revamped missile-warning system that the public can trust by this summer, Schatz said.

In recent days, Schatz and his Senate colleague Mazie Hirono met with officials from the Department of Defense, FEMA and the Hawaii EMA in Washington where it was decided that, rather than take over the early warning system, federal agencies would provide examples of "best practices going forward". But a note on a monitor is not secure, especially if it's for computer systems dedicated to keeping people safe.
