Guam offers tip-sheet for ‘imminent missile threat’ as U.S.–North Korea tensions rise

‘Do not look at the flash or fireball—it can blind you.’
The two-sheet document was issued by the territory’s Department of Homeland Security. The information includes what to do during and after a blast, and what to do if you’re caught outside.
The official government tip-sheet comes as the rhetoric from both Trump and North Korea about possible war has escalated. On Friday, Trump said the United States military was “locked and loaded” in preparation of any attack, which came on the heels of him telling North Korea it would face “fire and fury” after any continued threat.
North Korea, in turn, has said it was targeting Guam, which houses strategic military bases for the United States military.
The tips include:
- Do not look at the flash or fireball—it can blind you
- Expect to stay inside for at least 24 hours unless otherwise told by authorities
- Removing an outer layer of clothing can keep radioactive material from spreading
- Not to use conditioner in your hair because it can “bind radioactive material to your hair”
Here is the entire tip sheet issued by Guam:
