New government study about nuclear attack

In November 2011, the government came out with a study to determine what would happen if Washington D.C. suffered a nuclear attack.

The full 120 page document, entitled, "National Capital Region Key Response Planning Factors for the Aftermath of Nuclear Terrorism",  is available to read on the internet.  You can see the document at the bottom of this article

It was very interesting to read where the most vulnerable populations would be, how long to shelter in place, how long it takes for fallout danger to be reduced, where the wind would most likely blow the fallout (DFZ=Dangerous Fallout Zone).

There are a lot of things here you probably don't know.
