U.S. Nuclear Target Map! Do You Live In a Death Zone?

A few days ago I was doing research on nuclear war, world war 3, and potential nuclear targets and safe distances from those target sites when I came across the NUKEMAP.

The U.S. nuclear target map is an interesting and unique program unlike other nuclear target maps because it lets you pick the target and what size nuclear device that the area your chose is hit with and then shows the likely effects and range of damage and death that would be caused by that nuclear device if it hit and detonated on your chosen target area.

The NukeMap looks to be fairly accurate as to the blast area, fallout and damage but of course all any  U.S. Nuclear Target Map can do is represent an educated guess as to effects of a nuclear blast from and to a given area.

If you’re curious to know if you’re living in a nuclear death zone then go over and give the NukeMap a try if nothing else you’ll be entertained for a few minutes. Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the page and look to the right side and click the “Don’t log usage data” before choosing and nuking your target.

I used the NukeMap set to the closest possible nuclear target to my location, that being Oak Ridge Tennessee and according to the map I’m safe from the detonation blast of the largest Russia bomb the Tsar Bomba, however, thermal radiation could be an issue.

According to the site Thermal radiation can cause:

Third-degree burns extend throughout the layers of skin and are often painless because they destroy the pain nerves. They can cause severe scarring or disablement and can require amputation.

Not good… however, there is some “good news” according to the U.S. Nuclear Target Map below from Wikimedia Commons


As you can see Oak Ridge Tennessee isn’t shown as a target on the map, but then the nuclear target map is from 1984 so those targets might have changed and or more target areas added to the list, and who knows where the bombs will land during a nuclear exchange, one could go off course and land right in my bedroom…

But, then with nuclear detonations it’s usually not the blast that but the radioactive fallout that kills the most people, and as you can see from the map below the most likely path of radioactive fallout across the U.S. from potential target areas. However, radiation can and will spread around the globe if it enters the jet stream.


Have you considered and planned for nuclear war? Are you living in a nuclear target area? What are your plans if and when a nuclear world war three begins?

  1. Personally I would be skeptical of that map as the Houston ship channel would be a prime target for any attack on this country. Plus the Houston area has a ton of people & business HQ’s & lots of oil storage & refineries. Hmmmmmmm?

    • Guess I missed the part about 1984! Sorry!

    • Jay D Kethley says:

      that map is a relic of the 1950’s and is 70 years out of date. The two targets in texas are still valid (dyess afb & ft hood), but there are 100 other equally valid sites now. Dyess is not a SAC base anymore. A full on exchange will kill 90-95% of the people in the US and a strip on the border of the southernmost 100 miles of canada from Vancouver to Fredericton . The only way to survive this is to move to a southern hemisphere country while you still can. Even a limited strike that hits only military installations will still kill 50%. The silos in montana & north dakota are for the most part empty. They stopped putting missiles there when the Russians built first strike missiles big enough to dig them out. The platform of choice these days is not an easily targeted pasture in eastern montana, but a submarine that can be deployed anywhere in the world.
      So Mr Author, how about a re-write on this article? The information you proposed to give is important. You need to use source material and sources current to the century, though.

      • The Nuke Map does not take in to account the two (2) North Korean nor other sat’s that are traveling over the Americas daily.

    • Mongoose says:

      The 2nd nuclear bomb wing in Bossier City, Louisiana isn’t marked either, looks like old info.

  2. JP in MT says:

    I have played with NUKEMAP for several years. Even though I live in Montana, I don’t fear a nuke strike. EMP is a different issue. That and any surviving government is going to descend on flyover-country and take grid related items to service the denser populated areas. I feel we will be left on our own with no “corporate” resources.

    • Jesse Mathewson says:

      JP. Good luck with their “attempted requisitions” in our area…I definitely see that as a greater threat. Dont want to shoot neighbors…but…

      • JP in MT says:


        I don’t see it as requisitioning from personal stuff, just “community stuff” like transformaers, construction equipment, furl stocks, and the like.

        Outside of town, trying to take people’s personal stuff is likely to cause them to depleat their ammunition reserves. I think it would require more resources than they are willing to use, or have available.

      • They will come at 3am, have guns to your families heads and dogs nipping at your nuts. They will use metal detectors to find your guns. They won’t ask. They WILL take it. Plan accordingly.

  3. A good day to re-think preparedness, make lists and immediately implement priority plans. I wonder if the “Doomsday Clock” will move from it’s current place at 2 1/2 minutes before midnight…

  4. Jesse Mathewson says:

    Yep i love arizona

  5. This map is way out of date. Look at florida, it doesn’t even show jacksonvillle. Mayport naval yard is 3rd largest in country and home to the forth fleet. Just over the boarder in Georgia is the sub base and storage for all the east coast sub launched nukes. Neither one of these obvious targets are even considered. How many other targets are not shown? It’s time they updated their target list taking into account all of the base closing and consolidations.

    • I’m sure the govt has updated the map, but for whatever reason, they may not want to release it to the public.

      • Anonamo Also says:

        This map is useless without info….for instance,,,To use the map you need to put in unknown DATA… Like strength of blast? what strengths EXIST? What strength is likely… only then do you have any idea of your liability.

      • it’s ALL TOTAL BS.
        why would THEY nuke and contaminate the land as THEY NEED THE REAL ESTATE, resources etc ?
        there’s other ways of killing us.

  6. Yeh..Ft Knox and Oak Ridge are both semi-abandoned relics of the cold war and hardly worth a conventional bombing raid let alone a nuke.

    • Babycatcher says:

      Oak Ridge is hardly semi-abandoned. I have friends who work there and aren’t allowed to say what they do. There’s been a refurbishment of sorts over there. They’ve taken down the old asbestos filled buildings and built new facilities more in line with current nuclear standards. The place is a beehive, judging from the traffic I’ve seen, just saying.

      • Oak ridge was the sight of the 1943 to 1945 uranium enrichment for the first A bombs. It was decommissioned in the 1970’s dew to massive contamination. It has been a “superfund” cleanup sight and museum for decades. The “Oak ridge national laboratory” is a separate facility that has nothing to do with military weapons production, but does conduct research into decommissioning and storage of obsolete atomic weapons. That is the “top secret” portion, but not a well kept secret. Like the similar facility’s in western Kentucky and Ohio and the “Hanford sight” in Washington state none of them still produce military equipment , enriched uranium or plutonium and there reactors were shut down four decades ago. The bomb factory is long closed and as I said it is a decommissioned relic of WW2 and the cold war.

  7. Well folks, I live in the South Carolina foothills. We’ll get some fall out, but not much else. At least according to the current maps. What the heck, I have to deal with the smog from Atlanta as is. Guess I’ll get a Geiger counter and just deal with it. Not gonna move. Like others, I’m more worried about an EMP from North Korea than nuc’s from Russia.
    Keep on prepping. We only have a short reprieve with Trump before the Dem’s get back in or we are at war.

  8. There were three different publications created by the US government on US Nuclear Targets. The first was Hi Risk Areas of the US, from 1976. At this time I have a copy but have not heard back whether this report is released for general consumption.

    The second report is the National Attack Planning Base 1990 (known as NAPB-90) from 1987. I helped get this released from FEMA via FOIA for public view, and have the entire PDF of the report on my website.

    The last report was created for Emergency Managers and the public at large. It is Risks & Hazards – State By State (FEMA-196), produced in 1990. This manual had generalized info in the first 20 pages or so, before having a two page spread for each state. The right side of the page had know natural hazard zones. The left side of the page had the state with county outlines, and known or suspected nuclear targets for that state.

    While the last source was generalized in it’s targeting, the 1976 and 1987 reports including higher detail maps for each state, computer reports showing numbers of expected deaths, injuries, damage and so forth.

    Here in 2017, 27 years after FEMA-196 was published, I’ve seen nothing since with any updates. I have a copy of the US National Aimpoint List on my site, but it’s incomplete, listing only lats/longs for several, but not all states. From the looks of it, I’d say it is from the early 1980s.

    I have had two different .mil contacts request access for it in the last ten years, and pretty much suspect new lists exist but are eyes-only.

    The link to my website takes you to a sample page of a large site project I’m working oin, that gives info, google map links (with satellite view zoom features), and examples of maps from the 196 and NAPB90 reports.

    Also on my main site, is the original nuclear target list of the US, but the list is probably 30 years old at this time. Taking into account that dozens, if not hundreds, of military bases have been shut down or consolidated, I have including the Base Realignment reports showing exactly which bases were or are no longer feasible target areas on the USATargetList.com website.

  9. Irwin Redlener video: “Duck and Cover is delusional”. The real world says: Not so. A man who experienced Hiroshima lectured his company in Nagasaki. All of these people were not harmed, thanks to duck and cover. In the train car, going home he saw the bomb flash and told people to get on the floor. Those who did not were severely lacerated. At ten years of age (1961) I knew what to do. Training works.

    • Overall, lots of good info.

      • A credible soothsayer said: we get nuked in the early 21st century. Hey, were out of the woods, early is long gone (delusional). Keep Praying for Guidance.

  10. Centurion says:

    As said previously, these maps are WAY out of date. I’ve studied this subject for some time and there are new priorities.

    These maps also assume a state-sponsored attack (Russia or China) with the intent to start a war and knock out key military, industrial or political targets.

    Targets HAVE changed. Military bases have closed. New, larger airports have been built in new spots. Small ocean ports have expanded to become cargo hubs and therefore targets.

    Enemies have changed. If a terrorist has a nuke, their priorities are different than a state sponsor. If you only have access to 10 nukes, then you have different targets than if you have 100 to spread around.

    Technology has also changed. GPS and computer guidance systems allow a much smaller nuke (or conventional weapon) to be used to attack specific targets. Why would Russia destroy half a city, when all they really want to do is take out the large airport runway and the National Guard planes located nearby?

    Many of the primary targets in the 1980s were missile fields. The Dakotas, Missouri and Arkansas. Again, targets change. Many of those primary targets are now privately owned relic properties that haven’t seen a military vehicle in 25 years. Although I’d love to own one of those sites.

    I believe (…personal opinion alert…) that the opening shots of WW3 will be multiple EMP detonations along the East and West coasts. I also think they will use cargo ships and containers as Trojan Horses to get them close to shore, but probably more detail than you want. I think the first shots will initially seem like whimpers because no one will see the explosions and no one will die. The power mains will simply blink off. Then, the hotline phone at the White House will ring and demand an unconditional surrender. At that point, we might have trouble tracking additional inbound missiles and our enemies know that.

    • Chuck Findlay says:

      I wonder if we still have the Ohio class subs running around with a load of nukes in them? Or if Obama converted all of them to underwater research.

      A sub (can hold up to 320 nukes) can be a powerful deterrent if we still have them in place. No country could survive a few subs hell bent on striking them.

  11. Saddle up says:

    EMP radius?

  12. If this is accurate, if Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickham gets hit by the North Koreans, we may make it through the explosion…depending on how much bigger Nork’s nukes get and how accurate the guidance system is…but I don’t want to think about the aftermath.

    My guess is that with little to zero warning it would be ugly.

  13. Living in NE WA on the Canada border a nuclear blast not a real fear. Seattle region a problem as is Spokane due military installations. Fall-out the biggest concern and improvised shelter can help there with a minimum of 3ft mineral earth blocking most gamma rays. I recommend “Nuclear War Survival Skills” by
    Cresson H. Kearney for in-depth study. Having food, water, and sanitation for several weeks a concern.

  14. IdahoBob says:

    There are two possible nuclear exchanges: 1. a terrorist or a terrorist nation hits us with one or a couple of nukes probably in NY City or Washington DC. 2. Russia or China risks it all on a first strike and sends between 2000 and 4000 nukes our way that hit us within 30 minutes of launch. The nuke map is meaningless. Every military installation is a target. Every major airport every large city every manufacturing center. There is almost no place in America that would not be within blast range. Worse (or better depending) some of these nukes will go astray where a nuke heading for Nashville hits Murfreesboro or the mmiddle of no where.
    These are really the only two possibilities. No one with the ability to take us out is going to leave us the ability to retalliate or to recover and wage war. They will nuke us back to the stone age and what the initial blast doesn’t kill the fallout and other consequences will. It will not be “local” it will be everywhere.

    • Jesse Mathewson says:

      The only nuclear exchange that would occur would, do so only if those who are really in control, do a little pruning if the tree so to speak.

    • IdahoBob: Do we even stand a chance? I have wanted to move out of Houston, for sometime now!! I’ve been prepping and tried to tell my family, we need to get out of Houston.. They think I’m crazy!!! I”m not , I just have my eyes open, and realize how dangerous of a World we live in. We need to live in a secluded area, with a fall out shelter.. But, it takes a lot of money to get set up.. Just what can we do???

  15. Babycatcher says:

    The only concern I have where we are is drifting fallout. But we prepped for that, so I think we can decontaminate quickly if needed. A lot depends on where we are at the time it hits.

  16. Aussie Prepper says:

    I’m with Centurion on his opinion the opening shots of WW3 will be a series of EMP’s. Perfect way to start a war when you think about it and don’t believe all the hoo haa about cars just being turned off and then restarted – weapons grade EMP’s are light years ahead of what we the average Joe currently thinks they are.

    Colin Powel summed it up at the start of Gulf War One when he said in the first minutes of the attack they obliterated Saddams communications and I remember him saying Saddam was “deaf dumb and blind” and from there on it was a turkey shoot.

    So it will be with the latest cutting edge EMP’s – take out the grid and a country is stuffed, it will destroy itself from within without a foreign boot being put on the ground. Sure most of the military will be hardened but that wont stop the riots and anarchy once the supermarket shelves are empty.

    Hell, most people cant live a day without their cellphones! They carry no cash, they use phones to find they way from place to place. What chance do they have if there is no electricity, water, cars, heating and the trucks to the supermarkets stop running?

    Sure there would be retaliatory strikes but when one side no longer cares, when they hate the “other” side so much they are prepared to press the red button that will be small consolation.

    About the only upside I can see is living here! I don’t think we are worth wasting a heap of nukes on – take out our powerful allies (or EMP ’em and they’ll take themselves out) and we are a walk in the park.


    • IdahoBob says:

      An EMP device is the worlds worst weapon. It is unlikely that any nuclear power would use it as a preattack strategy. Because a EMP weapon is a nuclear attack and would warrant an immediate and massive retalliation. It would be the equivalent of walking into the MMA ring and slapping the biggest baddest MMA fighter. It is incredibly stupid. Within minutes from a intercontinental missile being launched it can be tracked to it’s source. So even before the EMP can be deployed we would know who did it. The ONLY way to start a nuclear war is to launch a massive premptive surprise attack hoping to wipe out the enemy and prevent them from being able to launch their own nukes. There is no “nice” or easy way to have a nuclear war. An EMP is a laughable choice.

      As a terrorist device an EMP makes sense just as any nuke or any WMD makes sense because their goals and fears are totally different. However an EMP device is complicated and it’s delivery must be precise. You cannot drive an EMP into the country in a truck or in a ship. It must be set off 50 miles or so above your target. Generally speaking this is not something terrorists can do. An EMP attack is far less likely than either a single nuke terrorist attack or a massive first strike nuclear attack from Russia. It just doesn’t make sense strtategically.

      • Chuck Findlay says:

        It is unlikely that any nuclear power would use it (EMP)as a pre-attack strategy. Because a EMP weapon is a nuclear attack and would warrant an immediate and massive retaliation.

        That idea works great for a country and the leader of that country that is afraid of a counter attack.

        BUT today we live in a World full of crazy people that have no specific country designation to worry about. We call these crazy people (Hillary, sorry had to throw that in as one of the crazy people…) terrorist and they are willing to die in an attack.

        So yes an EMP is possible as these crazy people are out there and getting closer to having an EMP device.

        My guess is that an EMP device a terrorist would use would not be as powerful or as wide spread as one a country like Russia could make, but it would probably be bad enough.

        • IdahoBob says:

          Absolutely correct providing that the terrorists can get ahold of an intercontinental missile system and all the technology to use it because an EMP has to be delivered high overhead of the target. It is possible that a terrorist group will one day get a nuke or two. Small nukes capable of being smuggled into our country and detonated by a suicide bomber. In fact I would say that is likely. But to get a highly specialized EMP nuke and to get the technology to deliver it not likely at all.

          Having said this I would agree that all this could change in the future with Iran and NK continuing to build up their nuclear arsenal and Pakistan with a nuclear arsenal becoming more unstable. But even these things make it more likely that an attack would be one or two nukes snuck in and detonated on the ground and not an EMP device.

          IMHO if it’s gonna happen I pray it is an EMP. Because no one is killed by it and I believe we can recover within weeks to months even if the EMP was as successful as most people think it would be.

          Probably an outright nuclear attack will either be Iran hitting Israel or NK hitting SK. (Pakistan and India would be wild cards too.) Probably a nuclear terroist attack would be London, Paris or New York. Maybe Rome or Germany. Maybe Israel. All of these are likely, so likely that I would expect it within 10 years.

          I would suggest worrying about what is likely to happen and not the exotic EMP that is unlikely.

          • Chuck Findlay says:

            A terrorists doesn’t need an ICBM, all they need is a boat that can be driven into one of our harbors or up a river. Park it and walk away.

            Why should they go all high-tech when there is a simple way to do it?

            I would hope we are looking at ships coming into this country, but I won’t hold my breath thinking that The US is doing any kind of decent inspection of more then a very small number of shipping, if at all.

          • Again, exactly right for a conventional nuke. But totally wrong for an EMP I have already stated that a nuke being smuggled into our city or boated into our harbors is the most likely nuclear threat. But the EMP does indeed need an ICBM.

          • IdahoBob:

            The idea of the ICBM is a little limiting. A SCUD-C has a max range of 360 miles, the -D longer yet.

            My concern is putting one on a freighter and launching it just off the coast. You don’t need pin-point accuracy if it is just going up. And 3 would pretty well cover us. One off the east coast, one west, and one off Texas/Louisiana.

            Just a thought.

          • But why??? If you take a very powerful nuke (which an EMP is. And set it off exactly in the center of the U.S. at 50 miles altitude it becomes an effective EMP. If you fire it with a mediocre missile (a scud) and set it off somewhere up there but certainly not in the center of the U.S. and likely not at 50 miles it becomes a mediocre nuclear attack. BUT with the same exact missile driven into NY harbor you could take out a city of 8 million people. If you were a terrorist which would you choose and I might ad which is easier. Firing a scud requires a lot more additional support? This is the problem with the EMP scenario. It’s not that easy and more risky than simply putting a nuke in a boat and driving close to a big city.

          • An EMP attack is strictly a line of sight weapon, and scientifically an astoundingly large static discharge. Just like lightning, whether it’s cloud to ground, or ground to cloud, or even cloud to cloud, you have a static charge that is always seeking a path to ground to enable the discharge to achieve electrical balance again.

            The lower the altitude of the EMP strike, the smaller an affected radius. The curvature of the earth will protect whatever is over the horizon, but at an altitude of 600 miles, a megaton range nuke would create an EMP that would reach coast to coast of the continental USA.

            Read the EMP chapter of The Effects of Nuclear Weapons to get an idea. Also, research the Starfish Prime nuke tests, which is where the scientists first realized the secondary threat of EMP, when the streetlights and other electrical power infrastructure were directly affected at the moment of detonation.

            On July 9, 1962, at 09:00:09 Coordinated Universal Time (July 8, Honolulu time, at nine seconds after 11 p.m.), the Starfish Prime test was successfully detonated at an altitude of 400 kilometres (250 mi). The coordinates of the detonation were 16°28′N 169°38′WCoordinates: 16°28′N 169°38′W.[5] The actual weapon yield came very close to the design yield, which various sources have set at different values in the range of 1.4 to 1.45 megatons (6.0 PJ). The nuclear warhead detonated 13 minutes and 41 seconds after liftoff of the Thor missile from Johnston Island.[6]

            Starfish Prime caused an electromagnetic pulse (EMP), which was far larger than expected, so much larger that it drove much of the instrumentation off scale, causing great difficulty in getting accurate measurements. The Starfish Prime electromagnetic pulse also made those effects known to the public by causing electrical damage in Hawaii, about 1,445 kilometres (898 mi) away from the detonation point, knocking out about 300 streetlights, setting off numerous burglar alarms and damaging a telephone company microwave link. The EMP damage to the microwave link shut down telephone calls from Kauai to the other Hawaiian islands.[5]

  17. Chuck Findlay says:

    If we get Nuked it’s likely going to destroy the country as we know it, so we all are in a death zone.

    Take away trade, easy access to food, fuel and every other thing we have come to depend on and a lot of suffering and death is going to happen.

    But just because you are in a death zone doesn’t mean you die. Lots of solders survive death zones.

    Life will get crappy real fast if we get Nuked a few times, but it will go on. The best we can do is prep and try to understand human nature so we can interact with others with a bit of understanding of what is going on and have a better chance of predicting the outcome of interacting with them

  18. Chloe in Maine says:

    Nothing like the last few days events to make you look at the possibilities….
    I tried to find something that was closer to home… this link shows it but is a few years back on any updates…
    Looking here at Maine… not surprised at all… at the border of NH/ME you have the Naval Shipyard which repairs Submarines… Bath Iron Works builds Destroyers… several inland cities have an Armory… and the sea coast has oil storage facilities… they even show a blast point way up where Loring AFB was… even though it’s been closed for 20 years… if we can mobilize we can use it… right?
    I may be out of the blast zone but fallout will eventually catch up… I’ve got an NBC suit and gas mask/dozen canisters but not enough for anything long term.
    Not gonna go down without a fight

  19. The only certainty, is that if I make no effort and give up, I will fail. Please study: Kearny’s book (NWSS), long term grain storage (from grain elevators), homesteading, loopholes and interlocking fields of fire. Always Pray for Guidance

  20. Hate to tell you this but two ICBMs can carry enough warheads to hit every target on that map with some left over.

    No, I am afraid a full exchanged would cover a lot more targets than what is shown… a -lot- more.

    • Chuck Findlay says:

      Years ago I read that an Ohio class sub can hold up to 320 nukes, that’s a scary number for one ship to have.

      Imagine what it must cost to run and keep a Ohio class sub running and up to date…

  21. A full nuclear exchange has historically considered 6,000 megatons to be the expected exchange of warheads. And, as a few have pointed out, these old targets were considered with multiple megaton range nukes making up for the lack of absolutely on point targeting which did not exist 30 plus years ago. Today, GPS guided weapons can hit targets within inches of where they are precisely aimed.

    My knowledge and connections point to the biggest fear of our government, now, is specifically untrackable ground based terrorist warheads, making any real and valid discussion of nuclear targets in the USA wasted breath.

    Fallout shelter planning, usage, and understanding of the hazards of radiological weapons is now as needed as ever.

    Also, consider this. The chelyabinsk meteor of February 2013 was more powerful than the two nukes dropped on Japan after in 1945.


    This single 60 foot wide, 10,000 pound rock exploded with the power of half a megaton of TNT. The blast wave that caused the actual damage to the Russian city, hit moments later, injuring nearly 1400 people, causing a swath of damage 55 miles long.

    The explosion 14 miles above the surface created the blast wave that caused all the damage and injuries… EXACTLY as a nuclear detonation would cause.

    The thermal radiation from this air burst was 30 times brighter than the sun, and people in direct line of site who were close enough to the explosion suffered real thermal heat injuries.

    A perfect example of how duck and cover at the first moment of a blinding light in the sky would truly save lives. Duck at the light, and wait, however long it takes, for the blast wave to pass, considering every second afterwards as a chance to get lower, dig deeper, or find better cover from the direction of the burst, whatever the source.

    There is your reality…your proof…and your physics.

  22. Our enemies will just hack the grid, is the most likely scenario, if the sun itself does not do it first. If they nuke for an EMP, then we will retaliate with a nuke. They will hack it and blame it on whoever, and 90% will die.

    • Chuck Findlay says:

      The Sun (a Carrington Event) producing an EMP event is a long, long, long, long (and then some) shot.

      The Sun is 93 million miles away and throws out energy in every direction and the Earth is a very, very small target.

      The Earth receives 0.000000045% of the Sun’s Energy on a daily bases. And if you figure in the small part of the Sun’s energy that will be a Carrington Event discharge, and the fact that it’s unlikely the Earth will be in the path of any given discharge, the chance goes well lower then 0.000000045%.

      I just don’t see a chance of it happening as something to worry about.

    • Jesse Mathewson says:

      I tend to see the sun doing it for us – 🙂 history and all that. Cycles ya know? Throughout history every 80-100 years red colours through the sky have been ominous warnings – eg., carrington event- on a regular basis. Simply no electronics in much of the case…though, more and more archeologists are finding evidence of rather high level of tech as far back as Summarian and prior – eg., if you look at the non eatablishment approved approaches they look at tech wonders like the ancient “computer” pulled from a 6000+ year old ship- and more as evidence. Makes you wonder…how many times we humans and ancestors may have been here before…

    I live between Chicago and Detroit and between two active Air Forces bases and within an hour of a nuclear power plant. Should a nuke attack commence I would need to be underground at the time or it’s curtains for me.

  24. People who won’t relocate to escape active daily oppression (NJ, MA, NYC, LAX, MD, CHI) are unlikely to move due to the off chance of being irradiated during Armageddon.

  25. Good old Webb Pierce!

  26. Joel Skousen’s work: ‘Strategic Relocation’ provides maps of each state w/primary, secondary & terciary targets. Prevailing winds will ‘deliver’/disperse fallout. His book worth a look see.
    During the Eisenhower & Kennedy Administrations, those 2 signed nuclear test ban treaties w/the Soviets. In essence, the USA agreed to stop development & testing. Of course the Soviets didn’t comply- they never do…..
    As we were far ahead in development, why on Earth would our leaders want to give those barbarians an opportunity to catch up? Well remember our friends ‘The Council on Foreign Relations’ have infested every administration since WWII…..
    ‘MAD’ was primarily psy-ops/proaganda. It wouldn’t be a near an important issue w/o compliance by JFK , DDE & the CFR.
    If we wished to end the threat, rebuild the arsenals here, stop trade w/our enemies (particularly the actions of the Export/Import Bank- which puts taxpayers on the hook to bail out large corporations which trade w/foreign countries when said countries default on the loans). Stop foreign aid! Socialism doesn’t work, economically they will implode. Stop furnishing weapons to despots not a bad idea either.
    Over time, our capitalistic society will put us far out in the lead. Hell, the Kama River Valley mfg complex in the USSR was financed by the US. Those under the lash of totalitarian gov’t simply can’t produce/innovate/advance as much as free minds do.
    Remember the Monroe Doctrine? Get aggressive in routing out the despots to the North & South of us. After routing out those in our gov’t.
    Only my opinion…. Keep prepping on!

  27. they still have paducah KY listed due to the enrichment plant. But it has been closed since 2013 and will never restart. Nothing is stored there except depleted uranium

  28. This leaves off Oak Ridge, Sandia-Kirtland in Albuquerque, Los Alamos and Pantex in Amarillo.
