An ominous "In the event of a nuclear attack" email subject line that was sent to University of Hawaii students and staff Monday was part of plans to prepare residents for an attack by North Korea, local TV reported.

The email came as tensions between the United States and North Korea continued to remain high, particularly the rhetoric between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong un.

"In light of concerns about North Korea missile tests, state and federal agencies are providing information about nuclear threats and what to do in the unlikely event of a nuclear attack and radiation emergency," the University of Hawaii email stated, per KGMB-TV.

The information also instructed students and faculty to be cognizant of emergency sirens and to follow instructions on "sheltering in place," the television station noted.

In July, U.S. intelligence officials told CBS News that it believed that the North Korean regime would be able to fire an intercontinental ballistic missile equipped with a nuclear warhead by sometime next year that could reach the United States.

The Honolulu Civil Beat reported that Hawaii's distance from North Korea and its strong military presence could make the island an inviting target for the reclusive communist country.

The Civil Beat wrote that a group of Hawaiian legislators and their staffers met behind closed doors last month to get a briefing from the state's Emergency Management Agency on preparedness for a North Korea nuclear strike on Hawaii.

Toby Clairmont, the executive director of Hawaii EMA, said then that it has been stressing the importance of basic emergency preparedness, such as having enough food on hand for 14 days, the Honolulu Civil Beat stated.

"When you hear us speak to the public, it's going to start off with the majority talking about how to prepare your family for major emergencies … getting your act together," Clairmont stated, according to the Civil Beat. "And then it's going to include this (preparation for a nuclear attack) as one hazard in addition to hurricanes and tsunamis and other things."
