Japanese TV station sent people into a panic
*Just two days after Hawaiians were sent a false alert about an incoming ballistic missile and led to believe that their demise was imminent, a Japanese TV station sent people into a panic with a similar false alarm.
Japan's national broadcaster, NHK News, sent a text message alert saying that North Korea had launched a ballistic missile at Japan and residents should seek shelter immediately. Unlike the Hawaii false alarm, which took about 38 minutes to be retracted, Japanese residents received another message just a few minutes later saying, "Patterns of North Korean missile launch is erroneous." The TV station also apologized on air and said that the message was sent by the station in error and that no government alert had been issued. It's unclear how the false alert was sent out.
