Japan issued a warning to residents in two northern prefectures to seek shelter on Tuesday morning, October 4, after it said North Korea had fired a ballistic missile over the country.
In footage filmed in Misawa, in the Aomori Prefecture, a siren and alert can be heard. The government issued a J-Alert (National Instant Warning System) for Hokkaido and Aomori prefectures, as well as Tokyo on Tuesday morning.
The Japanese government said the missile had passed over Japan and landed in the Pacific Ocean outside Japan’s Exclusive Economic Zone at 07:29.
Local authorities said there were no reports of damage in Aomori City as of Tuesday morning but urged residents to report anything suspicious.
