The question is whether North Korea has accurate enough missile telemetry to hit Hawaii 7500 km (4650 miles) away.
Authorities in Hawaii confirmed this week that they’re restarting monthly tests of the state’s attack warning siren—a practice that’s been on hold for decades—in light of increasing threats from North Korea.
On the morning of December 1, residents on the islands will first hear their standard attention alert signal test, which happens every month and is a steady sound. Then, for 50 seconds, speakers will blare the attack warning siren, a tone that will waver, according to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser. It’s part of the local Emergency Management Agency’s preparations for a possible, but not likely, assault byNorth Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
“We do not want to cause any undue stress for the public; however, we have a responsibility to plan for all hazards,” agency administrator Vern Miyagi told CBS News earlier this year. “We don’t know the exact capabilities or intentions of the North Korean government, but there is clear evidence that it is trying to develop ballistic missiles that could conceivably one day reach our state.”
