HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The state says it will release the results Tuesday of a internal investigation into this month's false ballistic missile alarm.

The governor is also set to announce "some of the personnel actions" that will happen at the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency.

A news conference has been set for 10:30 a.m. at the agency's Diamond Head headquarters.

The false missile alert went out to all Hawaii phones on Jan. 13, causing panic and confusion.

In its wake, the state has changed a number of procedures and halted testing of the message until an investigation could be completed.

This story will be updated.
