HUNDREDS of North Korea's nuclear workers have died after an accident at despot Kim Jong-un's main testing facility
Around 100 people were killed when when an unfinished tunnel collapsed at North Korea’s Punggye-ri facility.
Another group of around 100 people subsequently died while attempting to rescue the entombed workers.
The disaster was revealed by Japan’s TV Asahi today, although they could not clarify when the accident and subsequent doomed rescue attempts took place.
Punggye-ri was the site of North Korea’s sixth-ever nuclear test on September 3. It is not known whether this directly or indirectly caused the collapse.
Foreign experts and human rights activists had warned this month, however, of the danger of despot Kim Jong-un’s crumbling facilities.
North Korea’s detonated its first ever H-bomb in September, causing serious damage to the facility’s foundations.
Subsequent small earthquakes have since indicated the area was becoming increasingly unstable.
China issued a dire warning to Kim regarding the state of the nuclear testing site.
They said a cloud of nuclear fallout could spread across "an entire hemisphere" if the facility collapsed. (North Korea is in the Northern Hemisphere, along with Europe and the United States . . . If their facility collapses, 5 days later the US gets the radiation!)
The Chinese Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Geology and Geophysics warned: “China cannot sit and wait until the site implodes. Our instruments can detect nuclear fallout when it arrives, but it will be too late by then.
“There will be public panic and anger at the government for not taking action.”
Chillingly, before news broke today of the collapse, they had warned such a collapse could spread radioactive material far and wide.
They said: "The fallout can spread to an entire hemisphere."
Paul Richards, a seismologist at Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, said: “What we are seeing from North Korea looks like some kind of stress in the ground.
"In that part of the world, there were stresses in the ground, but the explosions have shaken them up."
On Monday South Korea warned another nuclear test at the site could lead to a total collapse of the mountain facility, causing a deadly leak of radioactive materials.
You _can_ prepare at very little expense, the protect yourself and your family from Radiation if North Korea's site collapses. Here are sources on AMAZON for the simple, inexpensive products to keep you safe:
These Masks, rated at either N-100 or P-100 are excellent at protecting you from inhaling radiation particles in the air. They're cheap and easy to use. Having them is prudent, just in case!
ABOUT THE MASKS ABOVE: It is important that you have one WITH YOU or within immediate reach at all times. For instance, having masks at home while you're at work is useless if radiation arrives while you're at work. You need to have one in your desk or locker at work. You should also have one in your car in case an attack takes place while you're traveling. I have one for EACH of my family members both at home and in my family car, so if we're all together on an outing, and something takes place, we all have masks in the car. Your finances will dictate how many masks you get, but these are things to really think about as you prep.</p>
If Nuclear, Biological or Chemical Weapons are released, you want to protect your eyes. With chemicals, eye protection is understood, but with BIOLOGICAL, most people do not realize they can walk through infectious particles, some of those particles get on our eyes and when we BLINK, the infection gets pushed into our tear ducts and we're infected!!!!! So having waterproof goggles is essential for protection.
If a radiation cloud arrives, our public water supplies may be compromised for some time - and perhaps NOT SAFE to drink. Having some Emergency Fresh Water stored is a good idea.
Once your supply of stored water runs out, you're going to need more water, but NONE may be available via Municipal Water Supplies or stores. At that point, you will have to get water from nearby Lakes, Streams or Rivers, and that absolutely requires FILTERING before being consumed. Here are some Gravity-fed water filters you can resort to when your emergency supplies run out:
