Things may be getting serious in Korea.
Odds are that the DPRK military would shatter if it came to war, however that thousands or tens of thousands would die in the clash. The resulting humanitarian disaster would follow from the complete collapse of the Pyongyang regime and the desperate efforts of millions of refugees, many with weapons, to find food. The impact on South Korea could be catastrophic and China and Japan might be pushed into deep depressions. All concerned should have been stockpiling supplies and planning for the end of the North Korean regime for years now.
