Some people in Hawaii have taken to social media after receiving an emergency message on their cell phones about a ballistic missile headed for the island chain. The message (seen above) advised citizens to seek shelter immediately and that the message itself was “not a drill.”
Shortly after the message was sent out, however, several officials confirmed that this was indeed a drill and that no one was in danger.
