BNPP hypothetical 50-mile (80.5 km) radius evacuation zone: Bulacan

Japanese authorities declared a 20-km evacuation zone around the Fukushima nuclear plant. But the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) issued on March 16, 2011, a warning to U.S. citizens living in Japan to evacuate to safer areas if they were living within 50 miles (80.5 km) of the radioactive plant.

These series of maps show which parts of Central Luzon, Metro Manila and Souithern Tagalog will be affected if a similar 80.5-km radius evacuation zone had to be declared due to a hypothetical nuclear disaster at the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant (14.6291667N, 120.3136111E). The whole of Bataan will have to be evacuated.

In Bulacan, all town lying along Manila Bay and the southwestern towns of San Rafael, Baliuag, Bustos, Pandi, Sta. Maria, including San Jose del Monte City are within the danger zone.
