WOODBURY - Long Island Koreans are on edge as fears mount over North Korea's next move.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un cut off ties to the south and began threatening war this week, leaving many Koreans on Long Island concerned.

Associate Pastor Chan Ho Kwak, of Korean Evangelical Church of Long Island in Westbury, says many in his congregation this Sunday will be asking God for guidance.

It is unclear if North Korea will match its words with action. South Korea's Defense Ministry says there are no signs that North Korea will attack or conduct more nuclear or missile tests any time soon.
