Huh? There is no point to this, and it is a grammar/spelling train wreck. Lordganon 19:02, October 4, 2011 (UTC)
I agree with LG, what is the point of this page?--Smoggy80 16:56, October 5, 2011 (UTC)
I know its my article but LG and smoggy have got a point it just is not plausibleMartin1983 17:45, October 5, 2011 (UTC)
Why not make this just like the other city articles for DD? You know, pre and post-DD histories and stories about the surroundings? Godfrey Raphael 13:12, March 12, 2012 (UTC)
That'd be up to someone to recover the article and accomplish. The person - one permanently blocked on many accounts - that made this isn't going to be it.
But, you're right about what the article would entail.

Can I be the one to do that? Godfrey Raphael 13:25, March 12, 2012 (UTC)
Power to you. However, in doing so you'll need to talk to Fx - the author of the Nevadan survivor state - about the regional situation. And, feel free to do whatever you like to the content already there. Lordganon 13:31, March 12, 2012 (UTC)
Okay. Thanks for the heads-up. Godfrey Raphael 13:33, March 12, 2012 (UTC)
As far as I can tell in the Navada article-
- Nellis Air Force Base, located in North Las Vegas, was a major USAF facility. It housed a number of units including the 474th Tactical Fighter Wing, and was also home to the U.S. Air Force Tactical Fighter Weapons Center.
- Indian Spring Air Force Auxiliary Field, located near Indian Springs, was an auxiliary air field which came under the control of the Tacticial Air Command. It was being used to train pilots in the operation of fighter aircraft including Soviet warplanes.
- Groom Lake Air Force Facility, also known as Area 51, located on the edge of Groom Lake about 83 miles north-northwest of Las Vegas. The facility was site for the testing and development of a number of experimental weapons as well as rumored to be the storage area for a downed extraterestrial craft. (low yeald).
- Fallon Naval Air Station (NAS), located near Fallon.
- Hawthorne Army Ammunition Plant, located in Hawthorne. The largest US Army ammunition storage site in the nation, it covered over 147,000 acres and held some 2,400 bunkers. (550kt).

As you may or may not, I've recently adopted this article from Godfrey Raphael, and I have wanted to expan on not just Las Vegas, but the surrounding area. Thus, I need help on how the Hoover Dam would've been affected.
I would assume it would be abandoned, water continuing to flow through the turbines, even though they don't produce any power, and with the increase in rainfall (I believe) in the Southwest. I think without maintanece, Hoover Dam's northern sister - Glen Canyon Dam - would break following Doomsday - not immeaditly, but the dam was built into corrosive sandstone, and thus the increase in the amount of water might lead to erosion and collaspe. With the collaspe of the Glen Canyon Dam, the water would flow down the Colorado, overtop Hoover Dam, and cause havoc down stream. Thoughts? Enclavehunter (talk) 04:36, January 9, 2013 (UTC)
Have a look at dead proposals in the region - been brought up before on their talk pages.
So, before you ask, I have to say - no, it is not possible for people to make a settlement at the dam.
Given the massive floods and problems at both dams in the period from early 1983-late 1984, and that repair work would obviously not have been finished - or the overflow channels opened - there's going to be problems.
Bet on damage to both, and water going over the dams. Wouldn't bet on either outright failing, but it won't be good. Would fail long-term, but I don't think that horrid flooding would be the result. Some, true, but survivable, I believe.
Dam's are definitely going to be useless, of course. Not that that machinery would be usable after the EMP, anyways.
Where can I get permission to write within this?
