Between April 18th thru May 5th, 2017, but mainly identified as occurring on April 24th, state, local, and federal organizations will be conducting Operation Gotham Shield 2017, a drill for a 10,000-ton nuclear bomb being dropped in New Jersey, across the Hudson River from Manhattan.
During this exercise, 4 nuclear devices, 2 will be rendered “safe” but one will be a “successful” 10kt detonation in the NYC/NJ area, along with a smaller detonation along the US/Canadian border, so the drill will extend to that region, as well.
This may seen as distressing because drills for exactly what occurred were taking place during 9/11, Sandy Hook and during the Boston Marathon Bombing. News of this drill is not being reported in the Mainstream Media.
Among the organizations involved are:
– US Department of Energy (DOE)
– US Department of Defense (DOD)
– US Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO)
– US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
– US Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
– US Northern Command (NORTHCOM)
– State of New Jersey Office of Emergency Management
– State of New York Office of Emergency Management
– City of New York Office of Emergency Management
