Thursday’s Asahi reported on the first-ever training held in Unzen, Nagasaki Prefecture, on Wednesday to prepare for the possibility of a ballistic missile attack. Policemen, firefighters, SDF personnel, and some 30 local residents took part in the drill that was based on the scenario of a projectile landing without exploding. Pointing out the lack of sufficient underground facilities to shelter evacuees across Japan, the daily expressed concern that practical measures to protect residents from missiles are inadequate.
