"Moniteau has a population of about 11,800 people. The western sections of Monteau County receive some blast damage. Most of the people in this western region can evacuate to the eastern part of Moniteau to be safe from effects of the blast. Two major populated areas in this blast region may not be able to evacuate to the east; 15-psi blast shelters are therefore required for the people in those areas. The two towns are: Tipton (pop. 1,925); and Clarksburg (pop. 350). Because Moniteau lies east of blast areas ard in the direction of most seasonal wind patterns, the remainder of the county would have to take heavy fallout protection." ~ The Black Vault
