What You Need To Know
On six occasions this week AlertsUSA subscribers were notified via SMS messages to their mobile devices regarding safety and security matters. Most important for this update, on Monday, the US Consulate General in Amsterdam, the Netherlands issued a security message for U.S. citizens acknowledging a terror threat to the Women’s Euro 2017 Soccer Championship taking place in multiple venues across the country through August 6th. The security message cautions American citizens of an increased risk to their safety when in large crowds and urges a review of personal security plans and increased situational awareness.
Extremists continue to focus on tourist locations, transportation hubs, markets/shopping malls, and local government facilities as viable targets. In addition, hotels, clubs, restaurants, places of worship, parks, high-profile events, educational institutions, airports, and other soft targets remain priority locations for possible attacks. Credible information indicates terrorist groups continue to plot possible attacks in Europe.
In related news:
On Thursday, subscribers were informed of new threats by the Islamic State to carry out attacks on the U.S. Russia, Europe, Turkey & Iran. In addition to the threatening statements propagated through varied social media channels, the group also called on true believers in the U.S., Europe, Turkey and other “countries of the tyrants” to fight for their religion and the caliphate. In separate messages, the group also called on supporters to take advantage of their now widely disseminated weapons guides and manuals and mount attacks to avenge Israeli crackdowns this week at the al-Aqsa Mosque and on rioting Palestinians.
Hawaii Preparing for Nuclear Attack
The State of Hawaii is now preparing residents for the threat of nuclear attack. The campaign, by the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency, will see regular Cold War-style evacuation drills for schools, emergency sirens that will on the first work day of every month, an increased tempo of first responder training and more.
Given that the travel time for a missile from N. Korea would be around 20 minutes, the state’s initial guidance calls for residents to “get inside, stay inside, and stay tuned.”
According to Vern Miyagi, administrator of the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency, “We don’t know the exact capabilities or intentions of the North Korean government, but there is clear evidence that it is trying to develop ballistic missiles that could conceivably one day reach our state. Therefore, we cannot wait to begin our public information campaign to ensure that Hawaii residents will know what to do if such an event occurs.”
Readers can find more information on the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency website.
AlertsUSA continues to monitor the overall domestic and international threat environment and will immediately notify service subscribers via SMS messages of new alerts, warnings and advisories or any developments which signal a change the overall threat picture for American citizens as events warrant.
