No Change in Threat Level from Recent North Korea Events

Posted: Updated:

The Offices of Guam Homeland Security and Civil Defense (GHS/OCD), in conjunction with the Mariana Regional Fusion Center (MRFC), our federal and military partners, continue to monitor the recent events surrounding North Korea and their threatening actions.

“As of this morning, we have not changed our stance in confidence that the U.S. Department of Defense is monitoring this situation very closely and is maintaining a condition of readiness, daily,” stated George Charfauros, Homeland Security Advisor. “We will continue to keep the public updated on any changes or requests for action. For now, we advise the community to remain calm, remember that there are defenses in place for threats such as North Korea and to continue to remain prepared for all hazards.”

Multiple news organizations report that North Korea has produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit on its missiles. International news organizations also reported that North Korea threatened to carry out a plan to fire missiles at Guam and the surrounding areas.

At this point, we know the following:
·         All information is coming from media reports.
·         The Guam Homeland Security Advisor is in regular contact with national Homeland Security and the Department of Defense. He has not received any statement that there is an imminent threat.
·         The Governor of Guam will meet with local military officials to determine if there is any update to military stance.
·         There is no imminent threat to the safety of the residents and visitors of Guam and the CNMI at this time.
