Well this really depends on what city you are in or how close from one you are. IF the missiles are originating from russia it would take 30-45 minutes for the missile to reach you.
Gamma radiation will take its toll....you can wear white to block some the UV rays, but the best thing you can do to protect yourself from gamma rays is to get someplace with VERY thick material, preferably concrete. While it wont block all of the radiation it may protect you from large amounts.

If your in a fallout area stay put. An underground cellar is best. A good tip is to seal up the windows with charcoal if you have it.
