In today’s society, there is a lot of uncertainty about the future. We are on the cusp of a possible nuclear World War, as well as looming threats from natural disasters and other apocalyptic events. In such a time, it is a good idea to know where to go to survive such scenarios. There are currently five U.S. states that offer the best chance of surviving at least one of the above scenarios. According to a map presented by the Union of Concerned Scientists, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, and Nevada are five states where there are currently no nuclear reactors, which makes them the safest places to be in order to survive a grid down nuclear power apocalypse.

However, before you load up a moving van and hit the road, be aware that an electricity-generating nuke plant is apparently in the works for eastern Idaho, but it won’t become operational until 2024. The project, which aims to replace traditional coal-fired power plants, calls for six to 12 modular reactors that can generate 50 megawatts of power each.

A grid down blackout situation in states with operational reactors could be a scary life-threatening disaster given the likelihood of nuclear fallout that could harm the population and contaminate the food supply.

“A prolonged outage across 15 states and Washington, D.C., according to the University of Cambridge and insurer Lloyd’s of London, would leave 93 million people in darkness, cost the economy hundreds of millions of dollars and cause a surge in fatalities at hospitals,” TheHill reported.
