Japan has Merely 10 Minutes to Take Cover if North Korea Launches Missile

Ten minutes…In ten minutes can seem like ages if you are stuck in traffic or late for work. However, ten minutes is like seconds when you are running for cover from a nuclear missile. Although there may not be many places to run in order to survive such a deadly attack.

According to officials, Japanese citizens have ten minutes to take cover from the time North Korea fires a missile to the time of impact. Those precious moments simple won’t be enough for many.

Japan Times has reported that MILLIONS have viewed a government website that explains what to do in the event of an attack.

Fox News reports:

Osaka Mayor Hirofumi Yoshimura announced the city would establish a response team in case of any North Korean missile launch, nuclear attack, or attack on North Korea by the U.S.

Still, the mayor said, “Depending on the case, the warnings and alarms might only sound four or five minutes before a missile arrives.”

Last month, some people in Japan completed a first-of-its-kind evacuation drill in Japan centered around a North Korean missile attack.

Japan reportedly plans intends to use a system broadcasting information about a forthcoming missile attack via satellite, telephone, and cyberspace to local disaster management officials.

Once that step is in motion, local governments would relay the warnings through loudspeakers, emergency broadcast television channels, FM radio broadcasts and phone alerts, the Japan Times added.

The portal site says if you are outside when a warning is sounded, find the strongest concrete building you can or go underground, if possible. Families in homes are urged to stay low to the floor and under tables away from windows. If school is in session, students should hide under desks.

The fat kid is playing with deadly fire. Kim Jong-Un is toying with a massive war that could ultimately wipe North Korea off the face of the earth. He needs to tread lightly.
