“Hawaii officials said Saturday that a mobile alert saying a ballistic missile was headed for the state was a “false alarm” after people received the alert detailing an imminent threat.

Sen. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) issued a tweet saying that “there is no incoming missile to Hawaii,” saying she had confirmed with officials the alert was a false alarm.

Hawaii’s Emergency Management Agency (EMA) also confirmed on Twitter that there was no threat.

The false alarm comes amid heightened tensions between the U.S. and North Korea over Pyongyang’s nuclear program and continued testing of ballistic missiles.

Multiple members of the media and others shared the mobile alert they received Saturday, which warned of an inbound ballistic missile threat and called for people to seek immediate shelter.
