If a person is caught outside during an attack, people are told: "Do not look at the flash or fireball - It can blind you" and "lie flat on the ground and cover your head".

North Korea this week announced a detailed plan to launch a salvo of ballistic missiles toward the U.S. Pacific territory, which is a major military hub and home to U.S. bombers.

North Korea says it is in the final stages of preparing a plan to launch four intermediate-range ballistic missiles over Japan and into waters off the tiny island of Guam, where about 7,000 USA troops are based and 160,000 US civilians live.

The two-page fact sheet issued by the USA territory's Homeland Security Office of Civil Defense advises people to build emergency kits, have a family emergency plan in place and make a list of "concrete shelters near your home, workplace and school".


The governor of the Northern Marianas Ralph Torres says he has "full faith and trust" in US President Donald Trump to protect America's Pacific territories from North Korean attack.

In a guidance note titled "Preparing for an Imminent Missile Threat", Guam Homeland Security advised seeking out in advance windowless shelters in homes, schools and offices, with concrete "dense enough to absorb radiation". Radioactive material can spread, which is why removing clothing is vital. "Do not scrub or scratch the skin", Guam authorities advise, adding that the hair should be washed with shampoo or soap, while conditioner should not be used as it would bind radioactive material to the hair. The fact sheet also advises people against calling the school to check on their kids, as doing so could "slow down emergency operations and make it hard for officials to communicate directly with school staff".

North Korea parades ballistic missiles across Kim Il Sung Square in Pyongyang on April 15.

Pyongyang stepped up its bellicose rhetoric this week, threatening to target waters off Guam with intermediate range missiles.
