Hawaiian residents and international tourists were left in a state of panic after receiving an alert stating there was an incoming ballistic missile heading towards the island.  

For more than 30 minutes, terrified residents were frantically seeking cover and saying goodbye to their loved ones believing this was the real deal. 

It took officials 38 minutes to send out a second alert stating it was a false alarm.
