Mushroom Clouds: Kashmir Warns Residents to Prepare for Nuclear War

Officials in the Indian-controlled nation of Kashmir are warning citizens to build bomb-proof basements, collect two weeks' worth of food and water and be prepared for a possible nuclear war.

The officials did not answer calls from international press inquiring why they were suddenly concerned about a nuclear attack in the region, repeatedly fought over by nuclear-armed rivals India and Pakistan. However, a series of deadly skirmishes along the cease-fire line in recent weeks has heightened tensions between the two countries, which both have a substantial nuclear weapons arsenal.
Kashmir authorities published the shocking advisory Monday in the Greater Kashmir newspaper. Concerned residents immediately began to inundate the newspaper office and local government offices with calls after the report went public. 
The report advised residents to build toilet-equipped basements large enough to house the entire family for at least two weeks. If there is no basement, residents should construct bunkers in their front yards, the notice advised. The bunkers should be well-stocked with candles, battery-operated lights and radios along with non-perishable food items and water that is regularly replaced to ensure it is fresh, the advisory stated.

During an attack, it advises drivers to get out of their cars toward the blast to save themselves from being crushed by their soon-to-be tumbling vehicles. It also warns residents to keep contaminated people out of their shelters, as they will expose any survivors to potentially lethal amounts of radioactive particles.

The advisory didn't just focus on a nuclear attack, as it also provided information on what to do during a chemical or biological warfare attack as well.
