Glasgow Nuclear Evacuation
Nuclear Evacuation plans were reported in the Glasgow Herald some time after 2000. The story told of official papers describing the handling of displaced persons in the event of a nuclear strike, which were issued in the period of the Cold War.
Having been mustered on the river opposite India Street, the municipal bus fleet would then be used to transport them to Clarkston and Newton Mearns to be rehoused by surviving locals.
A reference to the original would be desirable for reference, as it demonstrates the under-estimation of damage and casualties that would have occurred in the event that there had been such a strike; air-burst weapons would have been employed, inflicting extensive casualties over the greatest area, and destroying much property in the vicinity with the blast. No windows would have survived, roofs would have been destroyed or set on fire, and conventional road transport crippled by debris.
