Out of curiosity I searched for maps that would reveal nuclear targets in the United States, and I’ve posted them here for your interest.

(See below for more maps)

The nuclear targets map shown above is one that I put together based on a number of factors while looking at other maps and data including military installations, nuclear weapons storage and silo locations, bases, cities, etc..

   

No doubt I’ve missed a number of them, as well as other probable strategic locations, but it’s simply presented as ‘food for thought’.

Note: The three larger appearing target areas shown within Montana, North Dakota, and the corner of (Wyoming, Nebraska, and Colorado) represent known ICBM silos and nuke storage.

Note: It may seem like there are more ‘red dots’ on the map than any probable nuclear attack, but believe it or not, there could potentially be more – given the many thousands of nuclear weapons in Russia (for example).

 
Note: I have several related opinion articles on ‘nuclear targets’:
(the one you’re looking at now), and…

Military Nuclear Targets in USA Mainland
“… a list of United States military targets likely to be hit first compared with others. Although there are lots of military installations, the following military nuclear targets logically seem more likely than others to be on primary target lists.”

The First Cities To Be Nuked
“…a mapped illustration of the top 30 most populated cities (and metro areas) in the United States which could potentially ‘go’ first in a nuclear war…”

 
FALLOUT MAPS
The nuclear target / fallout maps shown below are in the public domain.
They vary with regards to nuclear proliferation and opinion of the day during the time they were published years ago.

Some maps are older than others and might not represent some of the changes which have occurred since their publish, but they are still interesting to examine, especially relative to one’s own location…

Nuclear Radiation Detector – Geiger Counter

5 Nuclear Radiation Detector Choices

 
No one will win a nuclear exchange. History has shown that there have been psychopathic leaders – who had they possessed nuclear weapons, they surely would have used them. Are there still such people today? Of course there are. Lets hope that none of them ever are in control of ‘the button’.

The real effects surrounding the nuclear targets on any given map will depend on the type of nuclear detonation.

A ground burst detonation will not only pulverize everything within a given radius, but will also pulverize many countless tons of soil and dirt into the atmosphere. This will create a very dirty nuclear fallout situation.

An air burst detonation will still destroy buildings and everything on the ground from its shock-wave (within a blast radius), but it will not pulverize the soil and ground like a ground burst detonation would. This will result in less overall fallout in the atmosphere, however this fact is not to diminish the consequences…

In both circumstances, radiation (particles) will reach into the atmosphere and drift with the lower and upper level winds. While they will eventually fall out (some quicker than others), the effects could be long lasting.

 
Nuclear Power Plants?
There are many nuclear power plants located across the country. If the power grid (or part of the power grid) goes down during a nuclear exchange, there will additionally be a high probability that some (or many) of these plants will present a real and present danger if they cannot ‘scram’ in time – while critical systems are held up by diesel backup generators and dependence on a constant delivery of fuel to keep them running.

EMP
The Russians, Chinese, N.Korea (and others?) are apparently researching and developing Nuclear EMP technology (electromagnetic pulse). Some believe that a nuclear first strike will ‘first’ involve a salvo of EMP detonations at high altitude (potentially via orbiting satellites, or launched from submarines or even off-shore freighters). This may likely take down the power grid, followed by a first wave of nuclear strike. The primary targets will likely be military installations, while a secondary wave will broaden in scope. A third wave would likely involve strategic bombers mopping up what’s left. The first and second wave could be all over in minutes to an hour (point being – it will be fast).

Okay, that said, lets look at a few target and fallout maps…

Nuclear War Survival Skills: Updated and Expanded Edition

 
I created the following map a number of years ago which indicate a few general regions where it appears as though it might be ‘safer’ relative to other areas based on observations from nuclear target maps coupled with radiation and wind fallout patterns via prevailing winds.

Looking at it again however, there are likely several additional (potentially safe) regions here and there. I plan to re-do this map one day…

Nuclear Radiation Shielding Protection

iOSAT™ [potassium iodide] protects against radioactive iodine by preventing its absorption by the thyroid gland by saturating the thyroid with stable iodine, “filling it to capacity”. Once filled, the gland “turns off” its absorption mechanism, and it will remain off long enough for the radioactive iodine to disappear naturally.

This method of protection is extremely safe and effective, and up to 99% of all radiation induced thyroid damage can be avoided by the use of iOSAT™.

Because of the inherent safety, the FDA allows iOSAT™ to be sold without a prescription for radiation protection. Its use, however, should be limited to radiation emergencies, and only when recommended by emergency response authorities.

——————————————
Note: People should not take iOSAT™ who have a specific allergy to iodide.
——————————————

iOSAT™ is manufactured in the United States under strict FDA “GMP guidelines,” and is the only product which can be purchased by local, state and federal governments – and widely purchased by nuclear utilities.
