As international tensions continue to rise, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has begun to implement new emergency management plans for 60 cities to include potential nuclear detonations.
FEMA chemical and nuclear branch chief Luis Garcia has stated that the risk of minor detonations by terrorists are shrinking, while the chance of a government force detonating military grade weapons are on the rise. “We are looking at 100 kiloton to 1,000 kiloton detonations,” Garcia claims.
These shifts are primarily due to the increased development of North Korea’s nuclear weapons program, despite US President Trump’s relationship with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. The two had previously signed an agreement to work toward denuclearization, an act North Korea has a history of ignoring in the past.
Nuclear war is one of the hardest SHTF scenarios to prepare for, given its destructive nature. It’s also one of the most expensive disasters to prepare for. But those who did build their own lead-lined bunkers and filled it with hazmat suits, gas masks, and food, at least you’re actions are looking justified.
