Television and radio stations are due to participate in a test of the Emergency Alert System by broadcasting emergency information and instructions.

State Civil Defense officials say a contractor involved in a project to modernize the outdoor siren warning system inadvertently caused sirens to be activated at dawn today, the Associated Press reported.

No emergency exists, the city Department of Emergency Management said.

Sirens went off at 5:30 a.m. in parts of Oahu covering Makiki, Hawaii Kai, Waimanalo and Waikiki.

The sirens were immediately turned off by the Honolulu Police Department’s dispatch center.

I did not hear it, unless i was sleeping. Definitely no one heard it at Laie, lol.

On the other hand the contractor needs to be replaced if he/she made that error.
