In actions reminiscent of the cold war era with the former Soviet Union, American cities and states are preparing for the possibility of a nuclear strike by North Korea. Shelters that have been unused for years are being restocked with supplies, and citizens and even school children are being given instructions about what to do in case of an attack. Evacuation plans are also being readied.
The threat is real, particularly for the states of Alaska, Hawaii, Washington and California. For example, in the case of a nuclear tipped ICBM launch from North Korea the state of Hawaii would only have an 8 to 12 minute warning and California just a few minutes more. If North Korea launches missiles from a submarine near these locations there would be virtually no warning.
