How much warning if any do you think the public would get from our Military ? I know it would create mass panic and the freeways would be overloaded for that reason I bet we would get no warning from them . Best bet HAM system?

I would like to plan an off road route out of the Burbank area at least to an old mine or do a bit of research hunting for some abandon underground site .

Has anyone else heard about the nationwide EAS test that will be held tomorrow? I didn't know about it until I saw something on Twitter today, which referenced a report dating back to July. Here is something more recent:


The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), will conduct a mandatory nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) on September 27, 2017 at 2:20 pm EDT.

The test will assess the readiness for distribution of the national level test message, as well as verify its delivery. The EAS test is made available to radio, television, cable, and direct broadcast satellite systems, and is scheduled to last approximately one minute. The test’s message will be similar to the regular monthly test message of the EAS with which the public is familiar, only inserting the word “national.”

“This is a national test of the Emergency Alert System. This is only a test.”

Significant coordination and regional testing has been conducted with the broadcast community and emergency managers in preparation for this EAS national test. The test is intended to ensure public safety officials have the methods and systems that will deliver urgent alerts and warnings to the public in times of an emergency or disaster.

Periodic testing of public alert and warning systems is also a way to assess the operational readiness of the infrastructure required for the distribution of a national message and determine whether technological improvements are needed.

Could this be related to North Korea?

I'm not sure a warning is really going to help anyway. I mean how far do you think you could actually get and would it make much difference anyway???

It might if you're in just the right place. But what are the odds on that??? Plus like you said, with everyone else freaking out too, just how easy will it be to move around through all that chaos???

It seems to me that either you take out the rocket before it has a chance to arm itself or you need to not be where it hits or anywhere near it. Other than that I don't think there is much else you can do.

I understand that, but I was wondering if the deteriorating conditions on the Korean Peninsula was what led to this being planned?

You would get little warning IMHO. Because they will not know where exactly the ICBM would hit till after midcourse or later. You simply cannot evacuate the population in anyway in a 10 to 15 minute time frame. Look at how hard it was in Florida given 2-3 days.

Your far better to shelter in place. if you survive the primary blast etc. and you are properly equipped you have option IMHO. If I'm in LA and near live near the water I'd look to the sea to get up or down the coast.

Can we stop a NK missile strike. Apparently it is not likely. nationalinterest.org...

Can we prepare for a missile strike in California. The largest seller of bomb shelters is located in CA.
www.atlassurvivalshelters.com...

I have a friend that has one of these things on his farm. (Not in CA.) If you didn't get hit directly, had enough food and didn't go bat # crazy, these things probably work.

Honestly, talk of nuclear war is just insanity. Trump needs to use his head. A piss ant dictator like Kim needs to look strong to his people, so he spouts off about beating the evil Americans. Trump just needs to publicly say we are backing down. Then through the back channel, we can tell the idiot what ever we want. But, if you do it publicly and humiliate the guy, it weakens him. A weakened animal like this is very dangerous and you never know. A puffed up animal like this isn't a danger because he is so full of his own pride. Come on Donald, this isn't that hard of a game to play.

Do you think North Korea would just use conventional Nukes? Do you think they care about the Geneva

conventions?

When you are bleeding from every orafice on your body...ask yourself the above questions.

The answer is "Blowing in the Wind"

Trigger warning: poster Narcobuddha has opinions about the behavior of Californians that don't jive with Californians.

I'll be sure to throw up this disclaimer next time to avoid any arguments, misunderstandings, or undue stress to Californians.






That's perfectly fine buddha.

I'm born and raised Californian. I still live here, trapped somewhat, although i still have heart for this place, these people. Maybe im too forgiving. So be it.

Imho, most people in general, humans, are simultaneously amazing, jack asses. They'd save your life, but then make your life a pain in the ass, at times, for no good reason.

Oh humans, you intrigue me. Beautiful ants, an immortal once told me.


Ill tell ya this, California is quite likely the most diverse state in the U.S. We havent ripped each others throats out for reasons a lot of the rest of the world deem as "good reasons" to condemn and hate others.

We aint perfect, neither are any of you.

That said, Cali has been through a Hell many are completely unaware of. I know, i know this with all my heart. I have been in the very thick of it. Like the fate of mankind kind of seriousness.

Yet we are still here. Living in relative peace.


There's something to be said about that.

I'm not afraid of a nuclear attack on my family. I am afraid for North and South Korea.

Trump is afraid of nothing. Idiot.




Im concerned for South Korea, Japan, and California. And if they can deliver one to California, the radiation will drift over the rest of the US.

Kim is the problem, and China/ Russia need to deal with him before Agent Orange does

The vast majority of Californians came from other states...to make a better life.
