As we all know, North Korea is continuously threatening the United States with a missile attack. Meanwhile, the students of the University of Hawaii checked their inbox section on Monday in order to find an ominous email titled: “In the event of a nuclear attack.”
The Hawaii News Now reported, the students and faculty received instructions to “shelter in place” in case of ballistic missile and nuclear attack by North Korea.
The email stated, “In light of concerns about North Korea missile tests, state and federal agencies are providing information about nuclear threats and what to do in the unlikely event of a nuclear attack and radiation emergency,” citing a copy of the message sent by an ominous email.
In order to plan how to prepare the residents for a potential nuclear or blastic missile attack, legislators met in September on the island. Toby Clairmont, the EMA Executive Officer said Thursday’s public presentation would be a focus on the importance of emergency preparedness which also includes keeping significant food for the 14 days, the Honolulu Civil Beat reported.
In addition, the distance between Hawaii and North Korea is 4,660 miles. Due to the “recent regional military threats,” the countries who are on the radar of potential nuclear or missile attack are planning for a complete response when the need arises.
Clairmont told the legislators and staffers, “When you hear us speak to the public, it’s going to start off with the majority talking about how to prepare your family for major emergencies … getting your act together. And then it’s going to include this (preparation for a nuclear attack) as one hazard in addition to hurricanes and tsunamis and other things.”
Japan is also on the radar of North Korea as North Korea threatened to bring “nuclear clouds” to Japan. When the leaders urged United Nation’s member tell North Korea to stop and to end its ballistic and nuclear attack programs, the mocked Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe acted like a “headless chicken” at the United Nations General Assembly.
