Alert Sent Out to Hawaii Announcing Impending Missile Strike Proves to Be False Alarm

Imagine waking up in beautiful Hawaii, turning on the tube to catch a little college hoops action only to read a crawler stating the U.S. Pacific Command had detected a missile threat to the state. 

That's exactly what happened this morning in what was thankfully a false alarm. 

Still, it took 38 minutes before an official notification emerged of the false alert in what had to be a scary time for our friends way out west.
