“Public Service Announcements” – PSA for short (German: “Public Announcements”) are used in the USA to educate the population. They give advice on what to do about binge eating or gambling addiction. Or where to get Covid shots. Or they resemble hurricane escape routes.

Hardly anyone stays in shock listening.

But in New York, already plagued by waves of violence and a declining quality of life, the authorities are now building something truly terrifying: in a 90 second video (over 430,000 views so far) instructions are given on what to do in the event of a nuclear attack!

A nuclear attack?

What would have sounded like a bad joke six months ago now has an ominous undertone: since the Russian invasion of Ukraine, there have been ominous threats from Russia of possible retaliation against Kiev’s allies — most notably the United States.

The rhetoric became particularly telling in May, when rabble-rousers on Russian television claimed Kremlin despot Vladimir Putin, 69, could wipe out both coasts of the US – with just four nuclear missiles…

The New York video begins with a deserted street and a view of the facades of residential buildings. Sirens sound. “So there was a nuclear attack,” the PSA spokeswoman begins her explanations in the clip in a soothing voice. Background music: more cheerful than menacing. “Don’t ask me how and why,” he continues. “We’ve been hit hard – what do we do now?”

Three basic rules for emergency situations

The woman reveals three basic rules that sound as simple as child’s play:

► People should immediately seek shelter inside buildings (unless they have already become rubble from the blast from the nuclear explosion). This could be your own apartment, a basement would be better if there is one. Looking for protection in the car ‘shouldn’t be an option’, they say. And: “Stay away from the windows!”

► The second step: stay inside! One should close all the doors and windows and retire to the heart of the house. The spokeswoman: “If you’re coming in from outside, clean yourself up without delay!” Clothing should be removed and bagged to keep radioactive dust or ash from the body.

► The last piece of advice: “Wait for further instructions, either from the media or from the authorities!” Then the announcer imploringly says, “Don’t go outside until the authorities make it clear it’s safe!”

What happens when an atomic bomb hits New York?

But what would the reality of a nuclear strike against the city of 8.4 million people look like? In a dossier in New York Magazine, the horror scenario of a mushroom cloud in the Big Apple was calculated: 1.2 million people would die instantly, be burned or dismembered by the explosion.

The fallout, i.e. the radiation, would carry away another 500,000 New Yorkers. The radioactive plume would irradiate an area nearly a hundred kilometers in radius from ‘Ground Zero’.

threat from Russia

Russian hardline lawmaker Alexei Zhuravlev recently threatened on state television that after Kremlin-ordered nuclear strikes with the new “Sarmat 2” super missile, mushroom clouds would rise over the US east and west coasts, visible even from Mexico.

Horrifying new studies reveal the end-times global situation a nuclear war between Russia and the US would unleash: Nuclear inferno would send dust and smoke into the upper atmosphere, triggering a nuclear winter that could last thousands of years. Global temperatures would drop more than seven degrees, more than during the last 100,000-year ice age.

“The likelihood of a nuclear weapons incident in New York is very low,” the city’s emergency services told the New York Post after public shock over the video: “However, it’s important that New Yorkers know how to protect themselves”.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams, 61, told reporters: “I don’t think it was alarming, I’m a big believer in ‘safety is better than cure.’ After the outbreak of war in Ukraine, “precautionary steps were taken” and are prepared, even if there is currently no acute threat.
