Why US officials fear North Korea could launch missile today

So much for not wanting to create panic: the state-run University of Hawaii has sent its students, faculty, and staff an email that tells them what to do in the event of a nuclear attack.

The email stated, "In light of concerns about North Korea missile tests, state and federal agencies are providing information about nuclear threats and what to do in the unlikely event of a nuclear attack and radiation emergency", citing a copy of the message sent by an ominous email.

The EU also said a total number of 63 individuals and 53 entities were sanctioned under restrictive measures as listed by the United Nations, while 38 individuals and four entities have been designated by the bloc autonomously.

As we all know, North Korea is continuously threatening the United States with a missile attack.

"For this type of event, the ten campuses of the University of Hawaii will rely on the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency siren system and follow agency instructions on "sheltering-in-place".

The university's communications director, Dan Meisenzahl, claimed he was responsible for the email "right down to the subject line".


Meisenzahl said he takes "full responsibility" for the subject line, which he called "absolutely regrettable and a mistake".

Meisenzahl said he stands by the body of the email.

They also ban imports of North Korean textiles to the European Union and prohibit European Union countries from providing work authorizations for North Korean nationals, the statement also said.

North Korea is preparing to launch an advanced intercontinental ballistic missile with an enhanced engine that can make it fly longer, a Russian lawmaker told Kyodo News on Monday.

North Korea has repeatedly threatened to strike the US mainland, even vowing to strike the USA territory of Guam with four medium-range ballistic missiles in August, though Pyongyang later backed away from the brink.
