Hawaii is preparing for a possible North Korean nuclear missile attack on the state, according to the Hawaii Star Advertiser.
The plan, now being rolled out, includes a public education campaign to inform residents on what to do in the event a nuclear missile is headed their way. A missile could hit the state with as less than 15 minutes warning.
“We do not want to cause any undue stress for the public; however, we have a responsibility to plan for all hazards. We don’t know the exact capabilities or intentions of the North Korean government, but there is clear evidence that it is trying to develop ballistic missiles that could conceivably one day reach our state. Therefore, we cannot wait to begin our public information campaign to ensure that Hawaii residents will know what to do if such an event occurs,” Vern Miyagi, Hawaii Emergency Management Agency administrator, said.
The state will also encourage schools to start holding drills for students to prepare for a possible evacuation.
