Hawaii Department of Defense Brig. Gen. Kenneth Hara speaks during a news conference as Hawaii Gov. David Ige, left, listens on Tuesday, Feb. 20, 2018 in Honolulu. Hawaii's nuclear missile scare showed that the state began testing alerts before fully developing a plan to address the ballistic missile threat and that a public outreach campaign months earlier wasn't effective, a report released Tuesday said. The state Department of Defense, the agency that oversees Hawaii's emergency management, released the internal review after an alert was sent to cellphones, televisions and radio stations across the state last month. Gov. Ige assigned Hara, the second in command at the Department of Defense, to conduct a comprehensive review of the agency's operations. (AP Photo/Caleb Jones)
