It's deja vu all over again. Following Saturday's erroneous alert of an incoming "ballistic missile threat" in Hawaii comes a similar gaffe from Japanese national broadcaster NHK. A message was sent out via the NHK app Tuesday that read: "NHK news alert. North Korea likely to have launched missile. The government J alert: evacuate inside the building or underground."
Unlike the 38 minutes Hawaiians spent cowering, this mistake was acknowledged within minutes, reports CNN. The AP reports several on-air apologies were made and says the broadcaster blamed a mistake in the use of its alert system for the error. (More on the two clicks that led to Hawaii's goof here.)
