Experts reveal what would happen if a nuclear missile REALLY detonated over Hawaii
Last weekend’s panic-inducing false alarm that warned Hawaiian residents of an incoming ballistic missile has brought to light the catastrophic events that could take place under a real nuclear attack.
According to a new report from DefenseOne, a warhead launched by North Korea would likely be far bigger than the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
The blast alone would cause well over 150,000 deaths if dropped over the capital city Honolulu – and, given the landscape and prevalence of wood-frame buildings, experts say an even more devastating ‘firestorm’ would soon follow.
