False alarm creates uneasy moment
PGA Tour golfer Charles Howell III was eating breakfast in his hotel in Honolulu when the restaurant started buzzing. Everyone had their phones. Everyone received the same push alert.
“BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO
HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.”
“All the alarms went off at the same time,” Howell said. “It got everyone’s attention. I didn’t know what to do. We all stared at each other. It kind of shows you the world we live in now. Your whole life can change in a second.”
The push alert turned out to be a mistake.
