From Terry Walker, caddie for Andrew Landry, who missed the cut at the Sony Open:

My wife and I were having breakfast at our favorite cafe in Waikiki when we received the alert of an incoming missile.

Several people panicked and raced out of the restaurant. My wife and I looked at each other and then she said: “If we’re going to die, then it won’t be on an empty stomach.” 

And we continued to eat.

There was a veteran sitting at the counter that turned around and told us it had to be a false alarm. After texting a military man that we met on the airplane, he confirmed the false alarm and we finished breakfast.
