Heat Blast (within county boundaries.)
The heat blast from the explosion is very powerful; up close, it can cause 3rd degree burns and even death. As the heat travels from the center of the explosion, it gets weaker. The heat can affect people many miles from the explosion.
Burn LevelPercent
County
Description
First Degree0.53%
  • High rate (80%) of first degree burns for those outside. Symptoms include:
    • Pain
    • Redness
  • Almost no fatalities from burns
  • Eye damage or blindness possible if looking in direction of blast
Second Degree0.04%
  • High rate (80%) of second degree burns for those outside. Symptoms include:
    • Persistent pain
    • Blisters
    • Swelling
    • Scarring
    • Nerve damage
    • Possibility of infection
  • Flash burns to eyes possible if looking in direction of blast
  • Some fatalities from burns
  • Eye damage or blindness possible if looking in direction of blast
  • Newspapers, leaves, rotting wood ignite
Total0.57%
Shockwave (within county boundaries.)
The shock wave is most damaging at the site of the explosion. It acts like a very strong, very fast wind. Close to the explosion, it can topple skyscrapers and overturn vehicles. People are injured or killed when buildings collapse. The effect gets weaker the farther the shock wave travels from the center of the blast. The shock wave can be felt many miles from the explosion.
Shockwave PressurePercent
County
Description
1 PSI4.25%
  • Windows shatter
  • Some trees knocked down
  • Roof damage to many buildings
  • Injuries mainly from flying glass or small objects
Total4.25%
Fallout (within county boundaries.)
The explosion sucks up bits of the ground around the bomb, carries them high into the air, blasts them into tiny particles and irradiates them. These particles can be carried hundreds, or even thousands of miles, as they slowly drift down to earth in a a "fallout cloud." Where the cloud passes and lands, it showers radioactivity. Exposure to uncontrolled radioactivity can be harmful to living organisms. Because winds are very unpredictable, the fallout information shown here is based upon the average winds. Small changes in the wind can cause large changes in the results.
