Hawaii Is Preparing a New Nuclear Contingency Plan Because of North Korea

FOIA documents show the Hawaii Department of Defense is about to revamp its emergency plans for a nuclear missile attack.

Growing up in Hawaii, the only disaster I was taught to prepare for was a catastrophic tsunami. If you asked me what to do, say, during a nuclear missile attack, I’d be utterly useless.

It wasn’t necessarily my fault, though. Decades had elapsed since residents worried about “the bomb.” Hawaii’s most recent community shelter plan, a set of instructions for surviving nuclear fallout, dates to 1985, when Cold War paranoia was still palpable. But as unproven fears of a North Korean nuclear strike grow louder, so too has the need for public reassurance.
