Honolulu, HI. – This past Monday, students at the University of Hawaii opened their email accounts to find a chilling piece of mail, reminiscent of the Cold War. The email from their school advised the student of what to do in the event of a nuclear attack from North Korea.
Many on the west coast and in America’s Pacific territories such as Guam and American Samoa have been living in an increased state of anxiety since the North Korean Communist regime began to ramp up threats over the past several months.
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.
“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,” the email stated.
While threats to the American Pacific from North Korea aren’t anything new, recent missile and nuclear warhead tests have increased the state of alert across the region. A recent missile test by the North Koreans which flew a missile over Japan had the range to strike the American territory of Guam.
