Authorities Mull Consequences of NYC Nuke Blast

While #Occupy activists are rallying … so is crisis management infrastructure. Always Beware False Flags Piggybacked Upon Drills.

More than 150 local emergency responders and federal personnel at a Tuesday conference considered the aftermath of a potential nuclear explosion in Manhattan, Newsday reported (see GSN, Feb. 15).

Participants in the meeting, sponsored by the Suffolk County Police Department, also focused on recently developed ideas on guarding local populations against radioactive contaminants from such a blast.

An act of terrorism involving a nuclear device is thought to be less probable than an attack employing standard explosives or an unconventional weapon such as a radiological “dirty bomb,” according to Newsday. Still, any nuclear attack as large as the 1945 U.S. atomic bombing of Hiroshima, Japan, would have a catastrophic impact.

Radiation from a nuclear detonation in New York’s Times Square could drift over the entire city and areas of Long Island, according to a computer model developed by Brooke Buddemeier, a health physicist with the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California.

“That was the best thing they saw [at the meeting]; it really was an eye opener,” said Inspector Stuart Cameron, who oversees the Suffolk County Police Department’s special patrol bureau. “The first and most important thing is people should seek shelter immediately; that has to be part of a public awareness campaign,” he added.

A 10-kiloton nuclear blast would kill tens of thousands of people and level buildings within half a mile. Buildings between half a mile and a mile away would experience significant destruction, and windows within six miles would be shattered.

About anomaly

SMiles Lewis has had a lifelong interest in all things anomalous. An early age proclivity at recalling his nightly dreams as well as several personal experiences with ESP, precognition and dream switching bolstered his interest in the paranormal. Shortly after high-school he joined the local MUFON chapter in Austin, Texas. He would later become a MUFON State Section Director for that group as well as leader of the local UFO Experiencer Support and Study Group. A lover of books, SMiles collected over 1000 titles before founding the non-profit Anomaly Archives that serves as the lending library of the Scientific Anomaly Institute (501c3). For over twenty years he has worked with digital audio, video and other bleeding edge internet technologies. He has published his own print journal (E.L.F. Infested Spaces), edited a local paranormal newspaper (Austin Para Times), maintained a large network of websites (, organized a national UFO conference (NUFOC-38), spoken to anthropologists about UFOs and parapsychology (Encounters with the Fantastic), hosted (and been a guest on) both terrestrial and webradio talk shows and has been podcasting since before the phrase existed. All these efforts and more have led radio talk show host Robert Larson to describe Miles as a “Gonzo Alt-Media Proprietor and Informationalist.” He is also the LOWFI-Texas State Bureau Chief of The League of Western Fortean Intermediatists. SMiles’ current projects include co-hosting PsiOp-Radio with Mack White as part of the many unique shows airing daily on his ANOMALY RADIO Network. He is active with several local non-profits which includes his service on the board of directors for the Institute for Neuroscience And Consciousness Studies (INACS) and the Scientific Anomaly Institute‘s lending library, the Anomaly Archives. His writings can be found within the Archives of his print journal ELFIS and ANOMALY Magazine. In his day job with the Texas State Library and Archives Commission‘s Talking Book Program he manages a Volunteer Recording Studio and audio duplication department and has been a consultant on two digital audio development documents for the Library of Congress‘ National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.
