HAWAII ISLAND – The sudden sounding of the warning sirens on Hawaii Island Friday night was a false alarm, officials say.
“Regarding Civil Defense sirens, there is no emergency,” police declared in a Nixle alert issued at 9:59 p.m., a few mintues after the sirens went off.
“Sirens malfunctioned,” police said.
Police said the malfunction was island-wide.
