FEMA: Hawaii didn't need approval to retract missile alert

Hawaii lawmakers are holding a hearing to learn the circumstances of an emergency alert mistakenly sent over the weekend that warned island residents and visitors of a ballistic missile attack.

To prevent a repeat of the incident, Hawaii's Emergency Management Agency has said it will require two employees to activate the alert system - one to issue the warning and another to confirm it.

At 8:45 a.m., 38 minutes after the text alert was issued, a second was issued stating, "There is no missile threat or danger to the state of Hawaii". An internal test involving the Emergency Alert System and the Wireless Emergency Alert was initiated during a shift change.

Ajit Pai, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission chairman, said on Sunday that Hawaii didn't have "reasonable" safeguards in place to prevent erroneous alerts like the one Saturday.

He's money no matter who he fights, with or without a belt. "I don't think he really has the stopping power to finish him". UFC lightweight stars Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson again have been booked to fight.

The Nixle system is different than the system in Hawaii so it would be more hard to make the same mistake.

"We will become more dependent on those mobile emergency alerts as we go into the future and try to use every tool possible", Crossley told the website.

Nielsen told a Senate panel the department had been unaware that Hawaii officials did not have a mechanism in place to address false alarms and retract them.

It's unlikely that continued sanctions or threats of military action will stop Kim Jong Un from pursuing his goal of arming North Korea with nuclear weapons. State officials say it would take about five minutes for the military to analyze the launch trajectory, leaving only 12 to 15 minutes of warning time for residents. NHK television deleted the warning after several minutes. It's that it doesn't take many cries of wolf before people start ignoring them - which could be fatal if the real thing happens.
