The US government was asking all citizens inside an 80km (50miles) radius to leave for the Fukushima power plants disaster. If the federal government followed the same policy in US soil, this would be the consequences in the three most populated cities: New York, LA and Chicago.In the case of New York, more than 20 million people in the metro area would have to be evacuated, leaving the city deserted, from Long Island to the Bronx. If there were a Fukushima-level accident at Indian Point, including the release of massive quantities of highly radioactive water, the city would be even more affected because of the Hudson River.
As I always say, getting into a panic and being prepared are totally different things. We should be prepared for the worst scenario if there is 1% of possible danger.
