Depends much on your browser your anti-spyware/antivirus, settings and so many other things that you can never be sure one way or another. I used something a few years ago for a very brief time that had so many alarms about FR that made it seem as bad as some African hot zone.
Hubby taught civil defense classes in the 60s;Back when the welfare of our citizens was a concern for the political class (or at least they pretended it was). Ironically, we are quite likely to have a nuclear event in today’s world, and the last time I looked, the Government had no info on this at their disaster planning website.
We left a portion of the basement unfinished so that we could make a combo storm/fallout shelter. As it is surrounded by concrete and dirt on 3 sides, we would only need to reinforce one wall and the ceiling to get the radiation protection. Then we would need a ventilation system.
There used to be several plans on how to do this available from the Government, but civil defense is a thing of the past, and hasn’t been updated for 30 years or so. They have their shelters, and could care less whether the citizens have any protection or not.
I had one plan bookmarked, but my computer crashed, and I was not able to find it again. I did print several plans - pretty expensive proposition. Pretty well set up for tornado though as is. Our long term storage and home canned stuff is downstairs in the coolest portion of the basement.
We should have built a solid concrete wall under the double fireplace, instead of cement blocks supporting the perimeter of the fireplaces, and dealt with the ceiling/flooring reinforcement and ventilation at that time.
We also should have built according to earthquake guidelines, but I didn’t really know that there was much that could be done for residential housing, and hubby never mentioned it. All of this was incorporated into our next house plans, but we decided not to move due to financial factors.
Something’s wrong—there are no underground mines coming up for Florida! The site must be broken. LOL
Then you'll have the Louisiana Superdome during Katrina on a galactic scale. No thanks.
