They had to parody the visuals from ready.gov?! I thought the originals were
in a dark way --> did you see the nuclear blast bullseye with the concentric
circles labeled "more radiation" and "less radiation"? How about the close up
street map labeled "Bomb Blast", your position relative to the bomb blast, and
the corresponding the yellow highlighted "Escape Route"?. I only wish I had
thought of that approach.
Some technical communicator just escalated the profession to a new, very
impressive level. Even though I chuckled at the approach, I found the site and
the information to be extremely well executed.
