As tensions reach boiling point between the United States and North Korea, the island of Guam begins to feel the heat.
Authorities on the island of Guam have issued a statement advising its citizens on what to do in case of a nuclear attack.
The fact sheet titled, “Preparing for an Imminent Missile Threat,” contained advice on what to do before, during and after a missile strike.
Residents are advised to prepare by building a supply kit and making an emergency plan.
In case of an attack, residents should look away from the fireball or flash and stay inside for at least 24 hours.
The Pacific Daily News even ran a frontpage headling that read “14 MINUTES” – the amount of time residents would have to seek shelter before a North Korean missile would hit the island.
