Guam Preparing For Nuclear Threat, Issues Fact Sheet For Residents

The small area that Guam takes up is now preparing for nuclear threat. Guam Homeland Security released a fact sheet for its residents on "preparing for an imminent missile threat" This obviously has to do with the nuclear attack threat from North Korea.
The fact sheet covers what someone should do if they're still alive after the blast.

The fact sheet said: "Do not look at the flash or fireball — it can blind you," "Take cover behind anything that might offer protection."

The fact sheet also covered what people should do if they're caught outside when the blast happens. "Remove your clothing to keep radioactive material from spreading. Removing the outer layer of clothing can remove up to 90% of radioactive material. If practical, place your contaminated clothing in a plastic bag and seal or tie the bag. Place the bag as far away as possible from humans and animals so that the radiation it gives off does not affect others,"

Residents should also take shelter immediately because of the radioactive material. The radioactive fallout can be carried by the wind for miles, so if your miles away don't treat the situation any differently.

Officials will try to use "all forms of mass communication to alert the public" after, during, and before the attack.

"When possible, take a shower with lots of soap and water to help remove radioactive contamination. Do not scrub or scratch the skin. Wash your hair with shampoo, or soap and water. Do not use conditioner in your hair because it will bind radioactive material to your hair," The paper mentioned.

It is as always recommended to create an emergency kit. This kit should contain medical supplies, food, water and quite possibly emergency blankets. This can be good if an attack causes authorities to not be able to evacuate people immediately after.

North Korea a country that often threatens nuclear attacks has come out and claims they're creating a plan. The plan is supposed to be ready by mid-August then it will need approval by Kim Jong Un, North Korea's leader.  The plan, in fact, is basically launching 4 missiles toward Guam. Guam is also home to a U.S military base.
