I believe that in the event of a nuclear incident, your options are as follows.
1) Know about it before hand, well before hand, and get your traveling done BEFORE the blast. If you fail to do that, and you are traveling either
during, or after the blast, then whether the wave hits you or not, the radiation will, and that will screw you over faster than a shoddy lawyer.
2) Have a hardened and well provisioned "its all gone to hell" room underneath your home, and pray to God you can get a message out to the
authorities, letting them know where you are, and what your situation is.
3) Hope to God that you are far enough away, and that the wind blows the other direction, constantly, and the radioactive muck never reaches you.
Really, the best thing you can do, is not live within one hundred miles of anything that kicks out more rads than a hospital radiology department.
Further than that, it is EXCEEDINGLY hard to counteract the risks presented by a radioactive event, unless you happen to have an awful lot of
training, know how, equipment, and access to a large support network.
