According to the survivalist website Survivalfreedom.com, the upper Midwest, Maine, West Texas, and several small pockets, typically in places with few populations, are where you can take shelter during a nuclear war in the US.
The first thing that comes to mind after President Biden’s nuclear “Armageddon” pronouncements and reports that the federal government is purchasing $290 million in anti-radiation medications for use in “nuclear emergencies” is where to shelter in the case of nuclear war.
The upper Midwest, Maine, West Texas, and several small pockets, typically in places with few populations, are some of the safest regions in a nuclear war, according to the survivalist website Survivalfreedom.com, which provides a solution to that issue. The East Coast is the most vulnerable part of the country because there are so many military bases, defence firms, important infrastructure, and big cities there.
The survivalist website linked to a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) map that shows the locations of Russian intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) that are most likely to hit those locations.

They said, “based on research of numerous sources, this is the consensus on the least safe and most safe areas in the United States in the event of a nuclear attack.” The map below shows red zones are “least safe” while blue zones are “most safe.”
According to Survivalfreedom, the most vulnerable major metro areas to nuclear assault are: “Washington, D.C., Dallas-Fort Worth, Jacksonville, FL, and New York, N.Y. These cities could be potential targets due to their large populations and strategic value.” Including these cities as potential targets for a nuclear strike:
- Miami, FL
- Los Angeles, CA
- San Francisco, CA
- Philadelphia, PA
- Pittsburgh, PA
- Chicago, IL
- Houston, TX
- Phoenix, AZ
- Honolulu, HI
The survivalist website listed Maine, Central Idaho, Oregon, and Northern California as the regions with the lowest priority targets, saying that these regions are “likely to be largely untouched in a nuclear exchange due to their sparse populations and lack of strategic targets.”
There have been few attempts to defuse or stop the situation in Ukraine, as Glenn Greenwald recently noted on Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News.
The richest man in the world has stated that the likelihood of nuclear war “is rising rapidly.”
The good news is that during the pandemic, millions of Americans relocated to rural areas from the cities. For those folks, perhaps it’s time to advance your knowledge of self-sufficiency even further and learn how to live off the grid because the future is still quite unknown and the next major war could break out at any time.
