Here are steps you can take in the event of a nuclear strike:

1. Get underground. A basement offers more protection from nuclear fallout particles than a building's first floor. Close windows and fireplace dampers. Turn off heating and cooling units. And the thicker the walls, the better. Dense materials - even books - provide more protection. This helps explain why some people in Hawaii apparently decided to lift manhole covers and climb into the sewers in anticipation of a missile attack.

2. Before a nuclear blast, build an emergency supply kit. The Federal Emergency Management Agency has a printable checklist for assembling a kit. The CDC has its own list. The list is long. Most of the items are obvious - first aid supplies, radio, flashlight. Other items include a manual can opener, baby wipes and a whistle for calling for help.

3.Make a plan for contacting family and friends in an emergency and for meeting up after a disaster.

4.Ask local officials where designated fallout shelters are in your community. If there are none nearby, consider potential makeshift shelters, such as basements, subways or tunnels.

5.Expect to stay inside for 24 hours after a nuclear blast. In areas with the heaviest fallout, it might be necessary to shelter in place for up to a month.

6.If you are outside when the blast strikes, do not look at the fireball. It can blind you. Lie flat on the ground and cover your head. If the explosion is far away, it could take 30 seconds or more for the blast wave to reach you.

7.Take shelter as soon as possible. Remove clothing to keep radioactive material from spreading. This step alone can remove up to 90 percent of the contamination.

If it does happen it will be crazy. Remain calm...Things to do in a Nuclear Attack
