The CNMI Office of the Governor, in concurrence with the CNMI Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency, advises the public that there continues to be no indication of imminent threat from North Korea.
The CNMI Homeland Security and Emergency Management agency remains in close coordination with the Mariana Regional Fusion Center, the Guam Homeland Security and Office of Civil Defense, and its military partners.
Around 7am yesterday morning, a missile launch toward Japan’s northeast region was detected. The launch, however, has been determined to not be a threat to the Marianas.
“We are confident in the capabilities of our Department of Defense members and assure the CNMI that we are closely monitoring any activity stemming from North Korea,” said CNMI HSEM special assistant Gerald J. Deleon Guerrero.
Additionally, the Guam Office of Homeland Security and Office of Civil Defense, together with the government of Guam leadership, are aware of the missile launch, and are advising there is no change in threat level to the Marianas.
There is no confirmed report at this time indicating the launch was considered successful.
The CNMI HSEM encourages the community to report any sightings of social media posts relating to the current regional events to local law enforcement or reach the EOC State Warning Point at (670) 237-8000.
The CNMI Homeland Security and Emergency Management also encourages the public to remain close to updates provided by local news and media, and by visiting its social media webpage outlets on Facebook: @cnmieocswp; Instagram: @cnmihsem; Twitter: @cnmihsem; or website: www.cnmihsem.gov.mp. (PR)
