Analyst: Gov. Ige's role in false missile alert debacle could hurt him

Missile Alert Mistake: The political ramifications

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - On January 13, 2018, for 38 minutes, over one million people in Hawaii thought their lives were ending.  Fortunately, the ballistic missile alert was erroneously sent, and at 8:45 am, the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency issued a retraction of the earlier warning.

While the head of HIEMA, Vern Miyagi, took responsibility for the false alert, this incident also casts doubt on the competency of Governor David Ige's administration.
