Just after 8am on January 13, an incoming missile alert was mistakenly sent around the Island State instead of a simple test alert. It looks like this got in the way of a lot of people's personal time, as PornHub experienced up to a 77% drop in traffic compared to its regular numbers.

Then, when the all clear was given, something amazing happened.

PornHub's local traffic spiked an incredible 48 per cent higher than usual, just 15 minutes after the all clear signal was sent out. What a time to be alive.
