You should primaly take shelter in a CP shelter. If you don't have this option, in case of nuclear leak take cover in an under ground cellar space or in case of a gas leak you should (depending on the gas) take cover in the top floor (don't go to the attic, because attics usually present a lot of "blocking" which will be handled later,
When it goes through material For example 35cm (14inches) of concrete reduces the radiation levels to 1:50
|Concrete 35cm||Concrete 45 cm|
|Brick 50cm||Brick 60cm|
|Solid earth 55cm||Solid earth 70cm|
When the distance to the radiating particles grows, half of the radiation is received when a person is within 8 meter radius of the source of radiation.
