What to Do if North Korea Fires a Nuke Toward Your City


Unless you’ve been living in a cave, you heard about the false missile warning in Hawaii a couple weeks ago. For 38 minutes, over a million people believe a nuclear missile was headed right toward them. Think about that for a second…

All those people who believed they were about to die had to decide how to spend their last half hour on Earth. Should they pray? Call their loved ones? Go to their children’s schools? Hide under their beds? I can’t even imagine how awful that must have been.

It haunts me because I fear that one day, I might find myself in the same situation, only for real. If we continue to appease the North Korean machine, the time will come when they can strike the U..S mainland with a nuclear weapon. While no one can be certain if or when this will happen, I think the risk is so high that we should all be prepared to face it.

The media made much ado about nothing based on a tweet by the president.

While most people think that having nuclear weapons is only about detonating them, that’s simply not true. If you are a chess player or enjoy strategy at all, you understand the true power of having nuclear weapons. The deterrent.

Despite this tweet, I am sure we will see the North Koreans shooting off test rockets again in the near future. This is the terrifying reality of our situation. Kim Jong Un is a despotic leader who is scared and desperate.

What if selling these shoddy nuclear weapons becomes just as effective as firing them? What if the rumors of satellite capabilities are true and they can launch a missile from above the nation? And what if they decide to deliver a bomb using a different modality?

The Bleak Reality of the Blast Zone

Though we all have a deep-rooted fantasy that the primo bomb shelter will protect us against the blast of a nuke, anything in the blast zone dies. Forget about prepping for the blast zone. What is more important is understanding where the blast zone might be and how you can get out of that zone ASAP.

We all know that major metropolitan areas are targets, so if America is going to face threats from nuclear powers, you must get away from these targets. You will not survive a nuclear blast if it hits your hometown directly. There is no prepping for that. You and everything you love will be vaporized.


Timing of the Attack

Since North Korea is on the opposite side of the world, it is likely their attack will come while we sleep. Targets stay still during the night as well. This was brought to my attention by Dave Jones on the Prepping Up With Jones Podcast.

Dave is a 24-year veteran of the U.S. Army and retired Army Chemical Officer. David Jones taught nuclear, biological and chemical warfare defense to military personnel all over the world. I regard his information as some of the best available to civilians.

He does a great class on nuclear, bio and chemical warfare for civilians. I met him at the prepper expo in Doswell, Virginia and invited him to come on the Prepper Broadcasting Network. It has been a wonderful time ever since.

Another thing Dave harped on was fallout. He drove home the point that if you do come in contact with the fallout, you can simply wash it off. You need to get your clothes off and wash your body with soap in the shower.

This should all be done while shielding your mouth. Fallout in the lungs is a big issue. Still, you can survive it.

Wild Lettuce is also Known as Opium Lettuce. For a good reason. While it doesn’t contain any opiates, it has similar side effects when used – it acts directly on the central nervous system (CNS) to lessen the feeling of pain, just like morphine.

Attack Location

Preppers who live in big cities are most at risk. These cities are targets. When it comes to an egotistical beast of a man like Kim Jong Un, he is going to want to make headlines with his attack. It will not be a tactical or strategic attack. It will be a shock and awe tactic.

For many preppers, it comes down relocation. It’s a big, scary thing to consider, but it’s the reality if you live in a city you are more of a target. That is not just true of an attack from North Korea, but of crime in general.

I am a proponent of moving to the outskirts of a suburb. I think city life is not conducive to family and prepping. However, homesteading in the sticks offers a lot of problems as well. You are basically on an island out there and things can go really bad, really fast in a collapse.

Changing schools, changing careers and moving away from the things you like is a sacrifice. How will you feel if you wake up and see the old city block you used to live on was incinerated? You will feel a lot better than if you stayed. Prepping is about substantial changes and putting yourself in the best position to survive.

West Coast cities are the biggest risk. Places like Denver, Chicago and of course New York are also big problems. Then there is Washington DC which may be considered the bullseye. It’s certainly the bullseye for terrorists.

Hiding from Radiation

If you are close enough to a blast that your home is still standing but you know there was an attack, you will want to take cover from radiation as well as fallout. To do this, you will want to get to the center of your home. Build or insulate a room out of insulating materials like thick blankets, pillows, and mattresses.

As the radiation and fallout reach your home, this insulation will keep you safe. How long do you stay in this shelter? According to FEMA, you want to use the 7:10 rule when it comes to radiation.

The 7:10 Rule of Thumb states that for every 7-fold increase in time after detonation, there is a 10-fold decrease in the exposure rate. In other words, when the amount of time is multiplied by 7, the exposure rate is divided by 10. For example, let’s say that 2 hours after detonation the exposure rate is 400 R/hr. After 14 hours, the exposure rate will be 1/10 as much, or 40 R/hr.

If you found this confusing, look at it this way. If 2 hours have passed and the exposure rate is 400 R/hr, just multiply 2 by 7 to get 14. Then you’ll know that in 14 hours, the exposure rate will be 1/10 of 400 R/hr, which is 40 R/hr.

An Ounce of Prepping

The good news about surviving a nuclear attack is that it doesn’t have to haunt your every waking moment. It’s not a problem that can happen anywhere at any time. The effects of one bomb will not be felt all over the nation (except for indirect effects such as an economic crash).

Let’s review the things you really need to concern yourself with and understand.

  1. If you are in the blast radius, you are dead.
  2. If you experience fallout, it can be washed off with soap and water
  3. Keep fallout away from your mouth and out of your nose.
  4. Don’t forget to leave your clothes outside if they have fallout on them.
  5. Remember the 7:10 rule of thumb when it comes to radiation.
  6. Get your hands on some Potassium Iodide pills in case of radiation exposure.
  7. Understand your location dictates your level of risk.
  8. Don’t go crazy worrying about it. You have a life to live.

The Most Comprehensive Book Available

Our grandfathers had more knowledge than any of us today and thrived even when modern conveniences were not available. They were able to produce and store their food for long periods of time. All the knowledge our grandfathers had, in one place.Here’s just a glimpse of what you’ll find in the book:

The Lost Ways is a far-reaching book with chapters ranging from simple things like making tasty bark-bread-like people did when there was no food to building a traditional backyard smokehouse… and much, much, much more!


Discover how to survive: Most complete survival tactics, tips, skills and ideas like how to make pemmican, snowshoes, knives, soap, beer, smokehouses, bullets, survival bread, water wheels, herbal poultices, Indian roundhouses, root cellars, primitive navigation, and much more at The Lost Ways


Here’s just a glimpse of what you’ll find in The Lost Ways:

From Ruff Simons, an old west history expert, and former deputy, you’ll learn the techniques and methods used by the wise sheriffs from the frontiers to defend an entire village despite being outnumbered and outgunned by gangs of robbers and bandits, and how you can use their wisdom to defend your home against looters when you’ll be surrounded.

Native American ERIK BAINBRIDGE – who took part in the reconstruction of the native village of Kule Loklo in California, will show you how Native Americans build the subterranean roundhouse, an underground house that today will serve you as a storm shelter, a perfectly camouflaged hideout, or a bunker. It can easily shelter three to four families, so how will you feel if, when all hell breaks loose, you’ll be able to call all your loved ones and offer them guidance and shelter? Besides that, the subterranean roundhouse makes an awesome root cellar where you can keep all your food and water reserves year-round.

From Shannon Azares you’ll learn how sailors from the XVII century preserved water in their ships for months on end, even years and how you can use this method to preserve clean water for your family cost-free.

Mike Searson – who is a Firearm and Old West history expert – will show you what to do when there is no more ammo to be had, how people who wandered the West managed to hunt eight deer with six bullets, and why their supply of ammo never ran out. Remember the panic buying in the first half of 2013? That was nothing compared to what’s going to precede the collapse.

From Susan Morrow, an ex-science teacher and chemist, you’ll master “The Art of Poultice.” She says, “If you really explore the ingredients from which our forefathers made poultices, you’ll be totally surprised by the similarities with modern medicines.” Well…how would you feel in a crisis to be the only one from the group knowing about this lost skill? When there are no more antibiotics, people will turn to you to save their ill children’s lives.

If you liked our video tutorial on how to make Pemmican, then you’ll love this: I will show you how to make another superfood that our troops were using in the Independence war, and even George Washington ate on several occasions. This food never goes bad. And I’m not talking about honey or vinegar. I’m talking about real food! The awesome part is that you can make this food in just 10 minutes and I’m pretty sure that you already have the ingredients in your house right now.

Really, this is all just a peek.
