Let’s discuss nuclear power plant disasters, nuclear power plant explosions, nuclear fallout maps, and even include an imbedded meteor impact simulator for you to try!

On occasion, I like to consider a large disaster that is a little less likely, but obviously still a concern and possibility.  So I decided to discuss a Nuclear Fallout scenario from one of the many nuclear facilities that we have in this country.

 

I’m not really trying to use today to explain what to do during a nuclear disaster, but on THIS BLOG POST you can read up on the actions I recommend.

In short, I think when there is a nuclear disaster that causes radiation and contamination release, you need to get out of dodge.  There is no use in staying there, which is why you should always have a bug out location nomatter where or how sustainably you live.  You need a place to go.

I really wanted to just give you a map to look at to show the different reactors and the projected fallout plumes from each.  Below is the basic map of the continental U.S. and the NRDC based weather patterns.

If you look at the eastern U.S., there is much more of a concern on the east coast.

The bold line looking things pointing in each direction is the fallout plume and the circle around the centerpoint is a 50 mile radius.  So you can see that sometimes you can be up to 100 miles away and still be affected by a disaster.

If you look at the directions of all of the plumes, you will see that many of them will go easterly.  The calculation of these plumes from NRDC is based on the prevailing winds from weather reports from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration for the specific days of March 11, 2011 and March 12, 2011.

What does this mean?  This is not definite and will change with different winds and weather conditions.

We think about these facilities when thinking of purchasing land, and I think everyone should.  You can find the map I was using for these photos here.

Now, another thing that you can consider is large infrastructure disabling targets and what the total concern would be if one of those locations were to be hit by a large scale missile.

Look below at the immediate effects of a 50 mt explosion over D.C.

Now let’s look at an astroid impact…wow!

Now, try it for major cities in your area:

Look on the map and see that you can select fallout map, heat map, and pressure map.  Try out different scenarios to see the concerns near your cities.

As you can see, we do need to consider these items when selecting land, but there are more likely scenarios to think about beyond nuclear disaster.  The issues are real, however, and warrant at least SOME consideration.
