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


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. The western most barangays of Laguna, Brgy. Magsaysay and Brgay. Langgam are just outside the danger zone.

In Cavite, the following areas will be affected:


BNPP danger zone 30/43

BNPP danger zone 31/43

BNPP danger zone 33/43

BNPP danger zone 34/43

BNPP danger zone 35/43

BNPP danger zone 36/43

BNPP danger zone 37/43
