This is a topic that has been on my mind as well lately (for obvious reasons), and after spending about half a day of searching, the most up-to-date “official” maps of potential nuclear attack targets I could find are from a 1990 FEMA publication. (I found more recent maps produced by individuals and organizations not affiliated with the U.S. government.) The FEMA publication is titled “FEMA Risks and Hazards: A State by State Guide (FEMA-196/September 1990)”. It’s challenging to find a PDF of this document, but you can find the maps for each state here: https://imgur.com/a/Q6o01 As others have already mentioned, there are a lot of unknowns when it comes to a nuclear attack (e.g., number of nukes launched, yield of the warheads, number of nukes intercepted en route, etc.), but based on what I’ve seen and read, if I were to pick a place to live based solely on maximizing my chances of (initially) surviving nuclear war, it would be somewhere along the southern half of the Oregon coast. There are no obvious targets there, and because of the prevailing winds (i.e., the fact that they generally go from west to east), exposure to fallout is likely to be much less of a concern. Of course, there are other concerns in Oregon (wildfires, tsunamis, etc.), and even if you survived the initial nuclear exchange, there is the issue of nuclear winter (in addition to societal collapse, at least in the targeted countries). A good, relatively brief (~15–20 min. read) reference on what to expect from a nuclear attack can be found here: https://thereader.mitpress.mit.edu/devastating-effects-of-nuclear-weapons-war/ As for myself, I live between two potential targets (an Army ammunition plant and a research university that does research for DoD), and based on NUKEMAP, my house is within the 5 psi overpressure zone for a moderate-sized warhead that strikes either target, meaning it would likely be destroyed. I fervently hope that the current situation does not spiral into nuclear war, but I’ve accepted that there’s not much I can do to change my situation. (I still do prep for other scenarios though.) That said, I don’t have any children, so it’s probably easier for me to accept this than someone who is a parent. Regardless, best of luck with your preparations.
