While reading in a magazine about insurance (Reactions May 2002 - www.reactionsnet.com) yesterday, I found two short articles that might be interesting when considering destinations to "bug out" to in case of nuclear strike & flooding.<br><br>1. Nuclear strikes - <br>website: www.nukefix.org<br><br>[article text]<br>"Here, you can download Nukefix, a free piece of computer software that claims to be able to help people analyse the impact and the likelyhood of an nuclear strike.<br>By using the program you should learn more about nuclear risks and how to mitigate them.<br>...<br>The site itself provides a lot of potentially useful information about nuclear weapons and the associated risks. If you click on the "Blast effects" link at the top of the page, you can find out how destructive the various types of nuclear weapons are.<br>In short, this is a very thought-provoking and interesting site."<br>[end of article text]<br><br>Maybe this site can give some useful background info about the effects of nuclear weapons. It could lead to better bug out plans. I don't know anything about the subject, so I'll leave it to the specialists on the forum to judge about accuracy & usefullness. <br><br><br><br>2. Flooding information for the UK<br>website: www.environment-agency.gov.uk<br>It's the UK Environment Agency's website.<br><br>interesting links acording to the article: <br>a. hompage=>choose a section=>flood (Here you find a wealth of useful data)<br>b. "Flood defence research an development homepage"-link<br>c. "Current flooding situation"-link (agency's 24-hour flood warning service)<br><br>On this site you can find the high-risk areas in the country and adapt your bug out plans.<br><br>While this site might not be interesting to most US forum-members, It might be of interest to those traveling to the UK and to the UK forum members.<br><br><br><br>I didn't have time yet to take a look at the sites myself.<br>English isn't my native language, so forgive me for the errors I made.<br>I hope these sites have some use for someone on the forum. <br>Tranx
