For most, Hawaii is a great place to vacation and a slice of paradise for mainland Americans.
However, Hawaii is now preparing for a potential nuclear attack from North Korea after new reports suggested that they are close to having their own nuclear weapon.
If North Korea tries to attack the United States, Hawaii would be their first target due to how close it is.
Conservative Tribune reports:
The nuclear plans have been described by Hawaiian authorities as “formidable and critical to the survival of our 1.4 million residents and visitors in the unlikely event of a nuclear detonation.”
The news and commentary website Motherboard reported that the “Plan of Action and Milestones” that outlines Hawaii’s plans to revamp its response to a potential nuclear attack includes plans to train personnel in how to respond to a nuclear attack, as well as reviewing its existing protocols. The state doesn’t want to foster “mass hysteria,” Motherboard reported, but has to be prepared.
Fox News noted that the nuclear contingency plans were last examined in the 1980s, which indicates just how seriously Hawaiian officials are taking the threat from North Korea.
President Donald Trump has made it clear that he will do everything he can to protect the brave citizens of Hawaii.
Despite this, Hawaiian officials are preparing for a potential attack as they want to avoid having another Pearl Harbor on their hands.
