UH email on nuclear preparation attracts global attention

University of Hawaii students reportedly opened their inbox Monday to find an email headlined: "In the event of a nuclear attack" - an ominous message sent as North Korea continues to threaten a missile attack on the United States.

In Washington, a USA official said that there had been indications that North Korea could be preparing for a missile test on or around October 10, the anniversary of the founding of the ruling Korean Workers Party and a day after the Columbus Day holiday in the United States.

"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", KGM reports the email said.

The EU Council extended sanctions against North Korea.

If North Korea were to attack Hawaii, it's likely target would be Honolulu.

Talks of preparing for the eventuality of a nuclear attack have cropped up in Hawaii in reaction to North Korea's increasingly threatening actions and rhetoric.

A link also was provided to the state emergency management website.

President Donald Trump has escalated pressure on North Korea to abandon its missile and nuclear programs.

The new measures include a ban on the sale of natural gas liquids and limitations on the sale of refined petroleum and crude oil to the DPRK, according to the council statement.

Tuesday's decision adds that all North Korean citizens "are suspected of generating revenue which is used to support the country's illegal nuclear and ballistic missile programmes".

Morozov said that Kim showed him a mathematical formula and explained the missile can reach the U.S. West Coast although it is the same type North Korea has fired in the past.

11 unanimously adopted a resolution to impose fresh sanctions on the DPRK over its nuclear test on September 3 in violation of previous Security Council resolutions.
