This post, thread, has nothing to do with what is happening in Japan.
I made this thread for members who are worried about radiation fallout if we in the US had a nuclear plant disaster.
How close is your home to a nuclear power plant?
If a crisis at a nuclear reactor happened in the U.S., could you be living in a danger zone? In a 10-mile radius, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission
says the air could be unsafe to breathe in the event of a major catastrophe. In 50 miles, food and water supplies may be unsafe.
While it is a pretty good general map, I feel it is just that.
You have to take into account wind speed and direction during the time of crisis. I feel that the radius would be very different during Santa Ana
winds that we have here in So. Cal
Still a good measurement map for those who ever wondered "what if"
