    HONOLULU - Hawaii emergency management officials say a push alert that warned of an incoming ballistic missile to Hawaii on Saturday was a mistake.

    The emergency alert sent to cellphones said in all caps, "Ballistic missile threat inbound to Hawaii. Seek immediate shelter. This is not a drill."

    Hawaii Emergency Management Agency spokesman Richard Repoza says it's a false alarm.

    He says the agency is trying to determine what happened.

    The alert stirred panic for residents on the island and across social media.
