HAWAII—A UND grad and his mom say they're relieved after a ballistic missile threat alert went out across Hawaii.

The video above shows that an 'emergency message' was sent out to Hawaiians.

It read 'Ballistic Missile Threat inbound to Hawaii. Seek immediate shelter. This is not a drill.'

Sean Lee and his mom Debra say they were confused by the alert and were initially concerned.

"I was focusing on trying to get confirmation that there was a real message, or real threat to us. Me and my mother were in a little bit of a state of confusion," said Sean.

Sean and his mom say they weren't surprised that it was a false alarm since emergency sirens didn't go off.
