In my eyes there are a few things that could happen:
- nuclear attack
- tital wave (asteroid / earthquake driven)
- alien invasion
obviously with a nuclear attack, being away from major cities will be important, but what constitutes a major city? I think we are assuming that this
would only happen in a major metropolitan area when it could happen really anywhere.. For this eventuality, I'd assume being in the middle of nowhere
and near fresh water would be imporant.. lets leave that one be for now.
with an earthquake, it would be important to avoid areas that are prone to such events.. One such area that comes to mind is the state of California.
Obviously, this is an area that could be deemed unsafe, but are there others? I'd love to see a map of the fault lines in America and places to
generally avoid.. If anyone has this info, please let me know, I'm highly interested.
with a tidal wave, it would make sense to be away from the coast. But how far away? 100 miles? 200? more? I guess that all depends on the earthquake /
asteroid that hits, but is there a general rule of thumb as to what is considered a safe distance?
finally, an alien invasion.. I guess it doesnt matter where you are for this because if they invade, its only a matter of time before we are all wiped
off the face of the earth. I hate to even mention this one, but hey, im thinking of eventualities for my family.
thanks for participating, i hope we can further this discussion.
