The threat of a potential nuclear war has been growing ever since Russian President Vladimir Putin first invaded Ukraine. As the Russia-Ukraine war continues, many are thinking it is a good idea to start preparing for the possibility of a nuclear attack.
Recently experts also released a list of some of the worst locations to be in case of a nuclear war in the U.S. Dinshaw Mistry, a professor of international affairs and Asian studies at the University of Cincinnati, in an interview with Newsweek said that the worst location is always the one that is expected to be the target of the strike.
Usually, strikes are decided upon because of their strategic importance. As such military bases close to populated cities are far more likely to become the targets in case of nuclear attack. This includes everything from naval facilities to air and command centers.
Mistry also noted that “major population centers” are unlikely to be the targets of a nuclear attack. This would include places like New York City and California.
Kathryn A. Higley, an Oregon State University professor in the School of Nuclear Science, in a similar interview, said that it is possible that the strikes will mainly target power plants or fuel storage centers.
This is something that Mark R. StJ. Foreman, an associate professor at the Chalmers University of Technology in Göteborg, Sweden, also agrees with, in regards to potential nuclear attacks.
