Hawaii To Begin Monthly Tests Of Nuclear Attack Warning Siren Due To North Korean Threats [VIDEO]

The Honolulu Star Advertiser reports:

The North Korean nuclear threat will soon enter Hawaii living rooms a little more forcefully as the state adds an “attack warning” wavering-tone siren to its monthly “attention alert” tests for hurricanes, tsunamis and earthquakes.

At 11:45 a.m. Dec. 1, during regular siren tests on the first business day of each month, 50 seconds of the steady-tone alert will be followed by a pause and then 50 seconds of the attack warning tone, said Hawaii Emergency Management Agency Executive Officer Toby Clairmont.

Clairmont said the last time Hawaii residents heard the attack warning siren test was around 1980 during the Cold War. The siren, if used as an actual warning, would signal the need to immediately seek shelter.

      Duck and cover is for wusses. I intend to stand outside and stare straight into the flash.

        Just remember to stand near something very solid and strike a pose for eternity.

      It’s not as useless it sounds really. It doesn’t protect you from a direct blast obviously, but far enough away you’d be safe from the window breaking and possibly be protected from some of the thermal effects

      Hubby and I have very good bubbly chilled and we will leave some interesting shadows. There is no underground and there won’t be anything left of the south shore of Oahu once the blast clears.

    • ColdCountry

      Or, put your head between your knees and kiss you ass goodby.

    • HandsomeMrToad

      Cuck and Dover.

  • Tawreos

    I hope they are calling it the Trump test

  • Um… if NK nukes Hawaii, there will be no shelter.

    Tsunami, sure. High ground will do it. But there is no escaping nuclear fallout.

      Sit your friend down on a fainting couch.
      22% of people in the rest of the world do have confidence in the US on the global stage, so there’s that.

      Also ‘No’.

  • safari

    Now let’s try to remember: wavering tone is take shelter and solid tone means prepare to die? Or is it the other way around?

    • Tulle Christensen

      wavering tone means kiss your ass goodbye

      • safari

        Are you sure?

        • Tulle Christensen

          can I call a friend?

          • safari

            I looked it up.

        • safari

          Yup. You are right. When its wavering prepare for vaporing when it’s steady just get ready.

      • Lazycrockett

        Well take it one step further god basically raped Mary to begin with.

        • Snarkaholic

          He certainly didn’t ask her first!

            obvious power imbalance.

    • MikeBx2

      This is what happens when Evangelicals come out in full force to support an admitted sexual predator for POTUS. It opened the door to excuse any behavior if you are a Republican.

    • Bambino

      But Joseph was shooting blank. He ain’t Jesus father. I think it’s one of the three wise man . Say so in that Mama Mia movie.

    So disappointed. I expected more from Hawaii on that siren sound.

    Can’t they just direct the nukes at Drumpf’s fat ass while he’s over the ocean?

  • Proud MOFO Beaner (bkb)

    Has this been posted?

    BREAKING: As I previously reported, Paul Wood (Chief BBC Russia Correspondent) has written of *multiple* witnesses at the Ritz Moscow who saw those women *with* Trump as he tried to get them up to his room *without* having them sign in. So the offer made to Trump was *accepted*.

      His security chief might have rejected it, but Trump never could make himself follows daddy’s rules.

    OT

    Shitefart attacking WaPo over Roy Moore is “highly cited” according to Google. WTF? Roosky trolls at work.

    I can’t get over all the winning! So much winning! I’m so sick of the winning!

    If North Korea takes the bait and nukes Hawaii, where will the humuhumunukunukuapua’a play?

    • Rebecca Gardner

      With me. I’ll SCUBA dive to them and save them all. 🙂

  • Treant

    If you hear that noise outside of a regular test, you might have just enough time to mix a very strong drink. Might.

    Enjoy.

    Ours got set off here once in the eighties by accident. The signals cascade and eventually set off the fire alarms in our high school. So from Duck and Cover, we had evolved to Go Get A Really Fast Tan.

    A 150kt air burst over Pearl Harbor/Hickam (which would presumably be Kim’s target) would destroy the US naval base and airfield, kill 7000 people, and injure 34,000. http://nuclearsecrecy.com/nukemap/?&kt=150&lat=21.3460473&lng=-157.9556895&airburst=0&hob_ft=0&casualties=1&fallout=1&ff=50&fallout_angle=-124&fatalities=7130&injuries=36379&psi_1=124927&zm=11

      They can’t aim that well, yet.

  • Silver Badger

    What earthly good would seeking shelter do? Better we send North Korea trump’s head in a basket.

    • OdieDenCO

      have axe (dull), will travel

  • geoffalnutt

    Please. The sirens will go off and people will run around in circles until the bombs go off. Hawaii is a chain of volcanic islands.

    • Ann Kah

      They’ve got a history of tsunami warnings and volcano warnings. That’ll only be the tourists running in circles.

  • BobSF_94117

    Instead of a siren, it should just blast out the warning “honi i kāu ass goodbye!!!!”
