If You Haven't Heard Of Raven Rock, You're On Your Own When Nukes Hit
If a nuclear attack or some other massive disaster strikes the U.S., there are secret bunkers ready for 10,000 government employees.
SHOW TRANSCRIPT

If an enemy ever launches a nuclear attack on the U.S. or if some other national catastrophe happens, the federal government is likely far more ready to protect its highest-level officials than you. Secret government facilities are in place to shelter thousands of government workers in hollowed-out mountains, a bunker in Omaha, under a historic hotel and more. One of these bunkers is Raven Rock.

The interview that follows features Garrett Graff, author of the new book "Raven Rock: The Story of the U.S. Government's Secret Plan to Save Itself — While the Rest of Us Die." Graff and Newsy's "The Why" host Chance Seales discuss the history of these bunkers and the author's surprising discovery of Raven Rock.
