Guam Fires Off 'Imminent Missile Threat' Doc Amid North Korea's Threat”

US President Donald Trump this week warned North Korea he would respond with "fire and fury like the world has never seen" if Kim Jong-un's regime did not cease to issue threats the to US and its allies.

In the meantime, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull referring to the threat by North Korea to attack on Guam has promised Australia would come to the aid of the USA in the event of an attack on America soil.

The other? "If they attack Guam or some other American interest", Graham said.

The American military presence on Guam consists of two bases - Andersen Air Force Base in the north and Naval Base Guam in the south - which are home to 7,000 USA troops.

Anchor: Japan has said that it could intercept North Korean missiles headed towards Guam if they pass over the Japanese territory.

North Korea has announced a detailed plan to launch a salvo of ballistic missiles toward the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam, a major military hub and home to U.S. bombers. The air base was built in 1944, when the USA was preparing to send bombers to Japan during World War II.

If caught outside, it is critical to not look at the flash or fireball, which can cause a loss of eyesight, and take cover "behind anything that might offer protection".

The unsettling document also instructs Guamanians to dispose of their clothes and wash heavily if they were outside during or after missiles hit the island, as this would help "remove radioactive material that may have settled on your body".

But do not scratch or scrub skin and "do not use conditioner because it will bind radioactive material to your hair". The military plans to move thousands of U.S. Marines to Guam from Okinawa in southern Japan.

She said residents would be immediately notified by the 15 All-Hazards Alert Warning System sirens, located in low-lying areas throughout the island. In the latest development, Gen. Kim Rak Gyom, who heads North Korea's rocket command, said in a statement carried by state media that his country was "about to take" military action near Guam.

Gov. Eddie Calvo and Guam Homeland Security Advisor George Charfauros on Wednesday noted the defense systems put in place in the region, such as the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense, or THAAD, missile system permanently stationed at Andersen Air Force Base.

After a missile attack is over, Guam residents are advised to keep listening for official information from authorities to know what to do next.
