A nuke map with kill radius. I wouldn't worry too much about any nuke over 50mt. The USA only has a few and probably russia as well. After 50mt, you get "diminished return". Nobody has a 100mt nuke.

Great news, eh? I'll add that to Covid, inflation, and politicians.

Is there anyway we could shield Chick Filet and Costco?

You would think Orlando would be a target but then again Disney is a huge contributor to feeblemindedness and degeneracy in the USA so it would probably be spared. The Villages would be safe regardless according to the map. Figure on a 5mt airburst tactical nuke for Orlando. You don't want to waste precious nukes.

No...Sorry...Costco is toast, comrade.

since there is a strategic nuclear submarine base merely 175 miles away home to our atlantic fleet, i wouldn't count on escaping the inevitable

I guess you're forgetting about the fallout of nuclear radiation that travels hundreds of miles and falls to earth. This problem also occurs when nuclear reactors break down and release radiation. The recent occurrence in Japan caused radiation to spill over to the coast of California.

The largest current nuke in the US arsenal is a bit over 1 mt. Russia did assemble and test a 50 mt three stage device in the early 60s but that was a one-off. The US did have an operational 25 mt three stage device in the 60s. The warheads on Minuteman and D-5 missiles are under 1 mt.

The US is estimated to have about 5,000 nukes and Russia about 15,000 still. While many of the Russian rockets and planes may not get off the ground even if you have 10% hitting the US or even just one I wouldn't want to be living afterwards as the retaliation will wipe out the other country and result in enough radiation that we all get sick and die probably within the year. I don't have a gun but I will certainly want to ask my neighbors to shoot us if that was the case as they would be no food within 3 months and no clean water. As it is often been said mutually assured destruction is the only sane theory to have concerning war.

The Russian certainly could have used a tactical nuke on the steel plant in Ukraine and that would have definitely brought retaliation by other nuclear powers. So even they understand mad

Covid proved that all you need to survive an apocalypse is toilet paper and hand sanitizer. Oh yeah, and a paper or cloth mask. .

Default Thousands of A & H-Bombs Already Exploded

This time-lapse video shows all of the thousands of nuclear bomb explosions that have occurred since 1945. I never realized so many have occurred.

NUKEMAP by Alex Wellerstein
So long Mom,
I’m off to drop The Bomb
So don’t wait up for me.
Just think while you swelter
Down there in your shelter,
You can see me on your TV…

Default Ash

If you survive the many blasts, then you’ll eventually starve to death from the ash clouds circling the globe and plants not getting enough sunlight to survive. With both super powers have nukes, we would be sending many to Russia and them many to the USA. End of the planet as we know it because of the sun being diminished for years.
