I've been reading on sites that say the a house's basement would be a good place to go to avoid radiation fallout. But then I go to another site and it says the exact opposite. So, which is true? My basement has rock walls and they are roughly 2 feet wide. And it's about 6 feet underground.
I'm not a nuclear physicist, I'm a mother protecting her kids which makes me far and above more qualified than some teenager with a download and too much time on his hands. Your information was wrong, you haven't presented any documentation to back up what you have said, and even after another poster gave you links to correct information you remain ignorant. You need to do more research if you are looking to protect your family or help others.

Im screwed, theres an oil refinery about 10km away and if theres a major problem there, the emergency hospital isnt the one in Southampton (because it would probably be destroyed) but one another 20km away.
Plus I live in a major port too. A nuke would destroy the whole city. At least Id be fried quick rather die die an agonising death through radiation poisoning.

One foot of concerte or 3 feet of drit,is the genral rule.
we build fallout shelters in basements, but it is much easyer out side to really convert your basement[which we do] you need to pour a foot of over head concerte,this not easy with nothing to sit it on. so we have gone to useing shot crete,messyer,but storonger.
