Do not look at the flash or fireball,’ Guam warns residents after North Korea’s nuclear threats

Vastavam web: After the repeated statements delivered by North Korea that it would attack US with nuclear weapons now the USA is taking measures to protect its citizens. Public safety officials in Guam have distributed a two-page pamphlet advising island residents how to prepare and react should North Korea follow through on threats to launch a nuclear strike against the U.S. territory.

The document includes several ominous warnings, the first being: “Do not look at the flash or fireball – It can blind you.” It also highlights steps for determining what shelters are “safe” – and for removing radioactive material that may accumulate on people’s clothes, skin and hair. (Do use shampoo, it says. Don’t use conditioner, as it will bind the toxins to your hair.)

The fact sheet’s title: “In Case of Emergency – Preparing for Imminent Missile Threat. Distributed by Guam’s Homeland Security Department, the guidance comes as President Trump trades increasingly hostile and alarming statements with the regime in Pyongyang, which has said it’s developing plans to attack the Western Pacific atoll.
