North Korea Tests a Hydrogen Bomb
On Wednesday January 6, 2016, North Korea is said to have detonated a hydrogen bomb. This test was conducted deep underground and was a direct show of power to the world. There have been monitoring stations in several areas that aren’t quite sure if it was a hydrogen bomb that was detonated or a different kind of bomb. Whether or not it was a hydrogen bomb or some other type of bomb, the main point is that North Korea detonated a huge bomb against international policy. The UN will be taking action, but its clear that North Korea doesn’t care what the rest of the world thinks. In the event that a bomb would hit a major city the following could happen:
- Hundreds of thousands of lives would be lost almost instantly
- A heat wave will set fire miles away from the center
- All buildings in the area will be completely destroyed
- If detonated high enough, it could cause an EMP
- Radiation reaching hundreds of miles
Should a bomb hit, there is not much to do for preparation other than listen to authorities and have an emergency kit that’s ready to go wherever you have to relocate. Click the link below to get the full story.
