Is Your Home Safe? Here’s Where North Korea Can Nuke

North Korea’s latest missile test has convinced United States intelligence officials that the communist state can now hit most of the U.S. mainland with their intercontinental ballistic missiles.

According to The Associated Press, on Saturday, the North Korean state-run Korean Central News Agency announced that North Korean President Kim Jong Un expressed “great satisfaction” after a Hwasong-14 ICBM reached a height of 2,314 miles and traveled 620 miles before landing off the coast of Japan.

Reuters reported that two anonymous U.S. intelligence officials said the test lasted about 45 minutes, outpacing the North Korean missile test on July 4, which lasted 39 minutes.

KCNA said that the test was meant to confirm the maximum range of the missile, as well as other technical aspects, and concluded by saying that the ICBM was capable of carrying a “large-sized, heavy nuclear warhead.”
