Residents of the tiny Pacific island of Guam say they're afraid of being caught in the middle of escalating tensions between the U.S. and North Korea after Pyongyang announced it was examining plans for attacking the strategically important U.S. territory.
Though local officials downplayed any threat,?some people who live on the island say they can no longer shrug off the idea of being a potential target.
A 37-year-old bus driver said he's worried about his son and feels like moving off the island.
Guam is used to the threats from North Korea but advances in the country's nuclear program paired with fiery rhetoric from President Donald Trump has heightened worries of a conflict between the nuclear-armed nations.
Guam became a U.S. territory in 1898 during the Spanish-American War.
