The Great War
The state of Texas was one of the biggest manufacturers of military vehicles prior to the Great War. It also housed Fort Lemoyne, the biggest airfield on the mainland US. These two factors contributed to it being a main target for the bombings. Two nuclear bombs were dropped, one on Dallas and one on Austin. These bombs destroyed the entirety of these two cities and radiation would spread throughout the surrounding area. Only a few minutes later, the border was destroyed by blasts from an underground powerplant's reactor exploding.
