UH email on nuclear preparation attracts global attention

UH email on nuclear preparation attracts global attention”

The email to students and faculty members gave instructions to "shelter in place" if a nuclear or ballistic missile attack by Kim Jong Un's regime did occur, Hawaii News Now reported, citing a copy of the message.

He said at the least, he should have worded it, "In the event of an unlikely nuclear attack".

As reported by the New York Daily News, this isn't the first notification relating to the possibility of a nuclear attack in Hawaii, as information was disseminated to residents this summer, following North Korea's test of a missile they say could reach the Hawaiian Islands.

The unusual nature of a university system alerting its constituency to the possibility of a North Korean attack attracted the attention of national and worldwide media, including The Washington Post, Fox News, CBS News and the Daily Mail of London.

"Now it's time to take it seriously", Hawaii state Rep. Gene Ward, a Republican, told Washington Post.

Experts consider North Korea's ballistic missiles capable of reaching Hawaii.

It went on to say state and federal agencies are now providing information about potential nuclear threats and advising what to do should a nuclear attack and resulting radiation emergency occurs.

General James "Mad dog" Mattis warned it is impossible to tell what the future holds for the crisis, but urged United States troops to be prepared for a confrontation with Kim Jong-un.

In addition, the distance between Hawaii and North Korea is 4,660 miles. But impact on a neighboring island also could not be ruled out, according to Vern Miyagi, administrator of the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency. The threat came closer to reality, however, when Kim Jong Un and his rocket scientists launched a missile over Japan in September.

Officials have revealed the nuclear vessel made port on Saturday, arriving at Chinhae, South Korea.

Japan is also on the radar of North Korea as North Korea threatened to bring "nuclear clouds" to Japan.
