Even though they’re being threatened with a missile strike, residents and tourists in Guam are going about daily life as normal.
North Korean president Kim Jong-un has threatened to drop 4 Hwasong-12 intermediate-range strategic ballistic rocket missiles on the small island US territory which is home to around 160,000 people.
The US and Japan have already come up with a plan of how to shoot down the missiles should North Korea attack, and Guam Governor Eddie Baza Calvo said he has “never felt more safe or so confident” with US President Donald Trump “at the helm.”
Although the small US territory is officially on high alert, residents of Guam seem to be going about their daily life as if nothing is different. Tourists are still arriving to visit the beaches and sights, local children are playing on the streets, and weddings are being celebrated.
Here’s a look at some of the scenes from Guam over recent days.
Tourists look like they're enjoying the sun at the beach at Ritidian Point in Yigo -- the northernmost village of the US territory.
