Hawaii missile alert: Broadcast of false alarm warning

An incoming missile alert plunged residents of Hawaii into panic on Saturday morning before it was declared to be false.

An alert system is in place because of the potential proximity of Hawaii to North Korean missiles.

In December, the state tested its nuclear warning siren for the first time since the end of the Cold War.
