US and Canadian naval aerial surveillance was spotted frantically searching the waters off California following threats from both North Korea and Russia.
Local civilians were able to use flight-tracking software to watch as low-flying submarine-hunting aircraft scoured the area.
From the Daily Mail:
The idling presence of anti-submarine military crafts hovering off the United States’ West Coast has prompted concerns of a possible threat to national security.
Three low-lying military aircraft were reportedly seen in the area using flight-tracking software, despite it not being a normal area of surveillance.
Among aircraft seen were the Navy EP-3E Aries II, which is used for electronic surveillance, a Navy P-3C Orion, used for submarine spotting, and a Boeing P-8 Poseidon used for anti-submarine warfare, InfoWars reported.
The military vessels were allegedly seen spanning the coastal waters from Los Angeles to the San Diego/Tijuana border near Mexico.
The website stated that a Royal Canadian CP-140 Orion, which is also known for its capability to spot submarines, entered the area at one point.
Both North Korea and Russia have threatened retaliatory action against the US in recent weeks.
North Korea specifically threatened to nuke mainland America, and a submarine would give them the best chance of successfully doing so.
