Sitting around having coffee when the TV and Smart Phones alerted. Warning inbound ballast missile... This is not a drill
That was scary all of us huddled in the bathroom on the 7th floor building waiting for the explosion. We were waiting at least 20 minutes before we knew it was a false alarm.
Glad I’m a Christian

1st John 1:9
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

But will he bring the bomb?
It was a mistake but Hawaii is very ill prepared for the real thing.
Probably not much you can do to survive a nuclear attack here on this island. They have been testing the warning system for two months now. My girls didn’t take heed and make any preparations in the event it was real. They were pissed off that it was a false alarm. I’m glad and pointed it out that it’s time to prepare.
Got to go hiking

If I was a good surfer or paddle boarder / kayaker etc I'd paddle out as far as I could go and head for any island that wasn't hit. Of course EMP high altitude burst is the more likely scenario
In reality I don't believe there will be any warning and it's amazing how many people think we can "shoot them down" we have no ICBM rentry (multiple warhead) vehicle defense except launching a counter attack
btw the easy way to nuke Oahu would not be a missile it would be a shipping container brought into Pearl Harbor

I went back and read my original post and realized I had used the word “exciting”. I changed the word to scary because it was scary. The warning stated that we were minutes from impact. Nicole was extremely upset even an hour afterwards.
The likelihood of any accurate nuke attack is practically nil – the only source at the moment is North Korea, and all they can do is “lob” one into the sea to within 1000 square miles – “one” at a time, they have no more than that
Not much consolation when you’re the recipient, but look at Japan – they have gone through this scenario multiple times already
In contrast, Russia had over 300 nukes aimed at Britain alone, all of which would have been launched within one hour – most would have found their mark to within ten miles
If the fat man with a funny haircut ever did let a live one loose anywhere near you, he’s going to unleash holy hell on his country – South Korea will take the brunt of it, a case of “unavoidable collateral damage”
China is unlikely to want to get involved, preferring to remain neutral – they want to take over the world – not destroy it …….
Why the hell would they notify if there is literally nothing that can be done
Just remember all "warnings" will be fake remember how incompetent all government is they will never see it coming
Now if you hear a nuke hit Guam grab some sea kayaks and paddle out ASAP
It funny (or maybe not) but I forgot you were vacationing and posting from Oahu.
Ballistic Missile Warning in Maryland (thought I????).
