Depends where the nuke hits and how fast you can run.

If there were a full on nuclear war between the U.S. and Russia, there is NO place on Earth that would be "safe" by any means.

run to the bathroom...brace yourself, and remember to bring flashlights, bottled water, and canned/dry foods

I live close to Barksdale, I'm pretty sure I'd go in the initial strike...

Do we get FEMA checks for this?

I'm not sure Barksdale would be a primary target.

Some third world countries would probaly be the safest place. Unless you have a pass to get into chyanne mountain or another military stronghold.

You think the Houston refinaries would be a target? My arse would be toast!

Anyone in South East Louisiana is screwed since New Orleans will be a prime target due to the port. And also the loop facility in near Fourchon although I can't see them wasting a nuke on an oil terminal but it does handle 20% of the Nation's oil. Unless you have a radiation proof room with safe water, food and radiation pills you better be a cockroach if you want to survive a nuclear war.

Yeah, you're dead. I was surprised and dismayed to learn that the Nola area is pretty high on the list as well.

Nope. You might be safe from the actual strikes, but your arse is dead from the fallout and nuclear winter afterwards.

That shite is pretty overrated you know. Nuclear winter would mostly be felt in the interior of large continents, and fallout would only be really directly fatally dangerous 50 miles or so downwind, and far closer if you have the ability to wait it out for a week or two.

The scope of damage of nuclear weapons is pretty overrated in the general. Not saying they aren't bad, but they are given way more power than they actually have.

This image is the combined radioactive fallout of multiple above ground tests in Nevada....none of the readings are in the range of causing symptoms outside of maybe a somewhat higher chance of cancer.

A quick over-view of this map of prevailing global wind currents tells me that the Yucatan peninsula area may not be such a bad place to go.
