The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

Hawaii’s preparations for a North Korea nuclear attack

Hawaii is preparing for a North Korea nuclear attack, New York Post, 21 July 17Officials in Hawaii are launching a campaign to help residents plan for a nuclear missile attack from North Korea — much to the dismay of the state’s tourism industry.

The Aloha State’s Emergency Management Agency is kicking off an educational campaign aimed at helping people figure out what to do if strongman Kim Jung Un decides to follow through with his threats, according to Hawaii News Now.

We need to tell the public what the state is doing,” agency chief Vern Miyagi said. “We do not want to cause any undue stress for the public; however, we have a responsibility to plan for all hazards.”

The plan, which will be unveiled in full on Friday, includes Cold War-style evacuation drills for school students and announcements that say “Get inside, stay inside, and stay tuned,” according to the Honolulu Star Advertiser.

The plan also includes tests of a new emergency siren on the first work day of every month, according to Hawaii News Now.

Tourism officials said the plan could be a blow to one of the state’s most important industries…….

Miyagi said the public should simply liken the preparation for a doomsday to the work being done to prepare for hurricanes and tsunamis……..http://nypost.com/2017/07/21/hawaii-is-preparing-for-a-north-korea-nuclear-attack/
