The U.S. state most threatened by NK nukes has an anti evacuation/planning law passed to spite Reagan.

Washington State allows evacuation plans for every disaster scenario except a nuclear bomb. The law passed in 1984, seven years before the end of the Cold War. It was the opposite approach taken by President Ronald Reagan, whose peace through strength doctrine led to the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Seattle is the closest major U.S. city to Pyonyang, an important factor when calculating accuracy, it is also home to the region's Naval Base Kitsap which has roughly 1,300 nuclear warheads -- almost one-quarter of the U.S. arsenal -- making it the largest stockpile of nukes in the world. The Puget Sound is also home to Joint Base Lewis McChord (two large bases connected, one Army and one Air Force), home to the important Stryker Brigade. With the headquarters of Boeing, Microsoft and Amazon, the region is a high-tech hub.
