BREAKING: Hawaii On HIGH ALERT After N. Korea’s Latest Move- Here’s What We Know

HONOLULU, HAWAII- As tense relations between North Korea and The United States have escalated, many Hawaiian’s are concerned about their island paradise being bombed by N. Korea’s fat dictator, Kim Jong Un.  

The regime is said to be preparing for another nuclear test and is developing missiles that could reach the Hawaiian islands.

That has some Hawaiian authorities scrambling to prepare for an attack.

The state’s emergency plans haven’t been looked at for several decades.

But the Hawaii House Public Safety Committee on Thursday formally called for the state’s defense agency to repair their hundreds of Cold War-era fallout shelters and restock them with medical supplies, food and water, Fox News reports.

“They haven’t been updated since 1985,” Rep. Matt LoPresti, a Democrat who serves as vice chair of that committee, told Hawaii News Now. “I was 11 years old when they were last updated. Many of the buildings that are on the fallout shelter list don’t exist anymore.”

Sounds like these libs better get off their asses, huh?

While the bellicose threats and displays of weapons capability in Pyongyang are playing out on the other side of the world for most Americans, Hawaii residents – some old enough to remember the last time their home was at the frontlines – see the dispute much differently. Honolulu is roughly 4,600 miles from the North Korean capital of Pyongyang.

Malia Zimmerman at Fox reports that a long-range missile launched from North Korea could reach Hawaii or Alaska, said Dean Cheng, senior research fellow with the Asian Studies Center at the conservative Heritage Foundation. Hawaii is possibly a more desirable target, Cheng said, since the state has 11 military bases, including Pearl Harbor, and is the headquarters for the United States Pacific Command (USPACOM) at Camp Smith.

Cheng warned that since North Korea likely has an imprecise system, missiles launched at Pearl Harbor could actually hit downtown Honolulu or other areas of Oahu.

The impact of a missile hitting the island chain would be horrific, Cheng said. Burn cases would flood the hospitals. The state would need a plan to treat people out of the urban Honolulu center, he said, particularly if Honolulu were hit directly.

While preparing the state for such an attack will take time, Cheng said the state must begin.

“This is a long-term issue that is not going to go away,” Cheng said.

Should North Korea initiate an attack, the state would have just 20 minutes to prepare, said Toby Clairmont, executive officer of the department’s Hawaii Emergency Management Agency. He told lawmakers it could take seven years, however, to prepare the state for such an emergency and ensure adequate facilities for the state’s 1.42 million residents, including its substantial homeless population, as well as millions of visitors.

Because the vast majority of Hawaii’s food supply and other goods are brought in via Jones Act-approved cargo ships to Honolulu Harbor, lawmakers also called for the state to prepare alternative sites for food and supplies to be delivered should the harbor be destroyed.

“At a time when we have this kind of saber rattling and really blustering foreign policy, it does make people a little nervous,” said state Rep. Matt LoPresti (D-Ewa, Ewa Beach). He’s supporting a resolution to update Hawaii’s disaster plans to deal with a worst-case scenario. Those plans are outdated and show a lack of available shelters in case of attack.

“They haven’t been updated since 1985,” said LoPresti. “I was eleven years old when they were last updated. Many of the buildings that are on the fallout shelter list don’t exist anymore.”

He also said those disaster plans and shelters should be in place, even if North Korea backs down. “Then you have them available, whether there’s a hurricane, fallout, or whatever it is. So it’s just not one kind of disaster.”

Sounds like a god plan. Unfortunately Hawaii is run by Democrats so my guess is that they won’t do a damn thing.

Maybe Hillary Clinton will save them…


God Bless.
