    Kind of a morbid site, but here it is. Type in your location and choose which type of nuke you want to drop, and click nuke it. It will show you the range of effects each nuke would produce. Pretty interesting.

    I hope Portland never gets hit with a Tsar Bomba 50mt nuke, it would hit me then! Oh and BTW, it also simulates an asteroid strke. Dont ever think you would escape one.

    I'd prefer to be at ground zero if an asteroid hit. Anyone not killed immediately would just suffer more...

    +1. Even if you were on the opposite side of the Earth, in the bottom of a mine, not good.

    Don't worry, we are all safe cause Portland declared itself a nuclear free zone...

    Oh thank goodness! I was getting a little worried there for a second. ;)

    Interesting site, but I thought it would be a bit more 'exciting'.

    Yeah, with "video" and that raspy junk rock that always seems to accompany them. :thumbup:

    If there's a threat of a bomb I'm heading to Jericho. They seemed to do ok in the TV series!

    Am I the only one who has ever wondered what the various blast and fallout damage areas would be if say, Portland got nuked? Ive wondered that alot, even though I dont think Portland is a very high value target.

    I've wondered about it too... also, back when '24' had an EMP go off in LA I drew that same "blast" radius over the Portland area... what only affected a bit of LA would have taken out all of Portland and the surrounding areas. Of course, that was TV --- who knows the real blast range.

    Unless someone goes nuts and drops a multi-megaton bomb, I am pretty safe from the blast - but would still have to worry about the radioactive fallout.

    I heard somewhere, again, don't know the validity, that Portland is a good location to drop a dirty bomb, etc because of our terrain and wind patterns the radioactive materials would be spread to more areas from one dispersal.

    Ive never heard that before, but I can see how it would be true. I guess a high value target to a terrorist doesnt necessarily have to be some strategic military target. 9/11 proved that high value targets to them, are where ever they can kill the most people. So maybe Portland isnt as low on the list as I thought.

    I live 30 miles east of Treemanx and I've never been all that concerned unless it's a 500 KT or larger..

    Cause we all know the Russians and Chinese are out to get Treemanx...;)

    Unless its an all out slug fest against population centers, the only real military target is the Portland Air National Guard base. Their F-15's patrol a large sector of the west coast and the refuelling tankers would be necessary to support long range bomber missions.

    You guys are freakin me out man........they really are out to get me! I didnt try dropping the nuke right on my house on that site, I just hit Portland with everything it had to see how Id make out. If it hit the center of Portland, Im pretty safe from everything but a Tsar Bomba, and of course, the dreaded asteroid!

    I think SOG was just sayin that if the epicenter was PDX, he would be even that much farther away than me. I think SOG, youd escape everything but the asteroid.




    But seriously, you dont really think there after me.......do you? hehe

    Not to worry Treemanx, If Portland does get nuked, Bama might report it to the UN, and they would form a committee to discuss drafting a resolution expressing their profound disappointment.....

    Now who would risk that ?:confused:

    Well the one important option they do not take into consideration is elevation of blast and topography. They also had a few other problems, just think of it as a fun site rather than a factual one......
