Authorities are concerned that North Korea’s intercontinental ballistic missile might have a farther range than was initially thought, according to The Daily Caller.

Officials are saying that in addition to Alaska, cities on the west coast might be at risk as well.

Check it out:

North Korea tested the Hwasong-14 on July 4, and in the immediate aftermath, experts assessed that the range was somewhere between 3,700 and 4,300 miles, potentially putting Alaska within striking distances. Following additional analysis, some expert observers expressed concerns that the new North Korean missile may have a far greater range than they initially thought.

“The question is whether they tested this at full range,” Melissa Hanham, a leading arms expert and senior research associate at the East Asia Nonproliferation Program in the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies, explained to The Daily Caller News Foundation July 5 “For now, based on the testing data that is available on the open source, it puts Alaska in range, but the concern is that the range may actually be greater.”

Reports say U.S. government officials think the new missile might actually have a striking distance between 4,500 and 6,000 miles, however no one would comment on the validity of that information.
