'10 minutes to live': Jim Carrey, other stars document Hawaii's missile scare

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A few celebrities who were in Hawaii at the time of the false missile alert took to social media to document their experiences.

Actor Jim Carrey said on Twitter that he woke up on Saturday thinking he had 10 minutes left to live. He called the experience a "real psychic warning."

Carrey has a home on Maui.

And singer Diana Ross, who was in Hawaii for a concert Friday, told TMZ she was "very frightened" about the alert. She said she had to evacuate into the basement of the hotel where she was staying.

Ross returned to Los Angeles on Saturday night.

Meanwhile, basketball star and businessman Magic Johnson appeared to have sought shelter on Saturday. A Twitter user said he and a group of others were huddled in what was described as a "fall out shelter."

The alert went off on millions of Hawaii residents' and visitors' cell phones at around 8:07 a.m. Saturday. It wasn't until 38 minutes later when emergency officials sent out a false alarm message.
