Hawaii Ballistic Missile Scare – What Happened?

On Saturday, our fellow citizens in Hawaii received the most alarming message imaginable – an alert that an incoming ballistic missile was aimed at them, and it was not a drill. Thirty-eight minutes later, Hawaii state emergency management announced that the alert was a false alarm that was sent by mistake.

Listeners from Hawaii join The Drew Mariani Show™ to give their first-hand experience of what it was like to be in Hawaii during the missile scare, and what they have taken away from their experience.
