Heat Blast (within metro area 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
Metro Area
Description
First Degree5.59%
  • 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 Degree5.06%
  • 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
Third Degree16.13%
  • High rate (80%) of third degree burns for those outside. Symptoms include:
    • Damage to underlying muscle and bone
    • Possible charring
    • Severe scarring
    • Severe nerve damage
    • Probable infection
    • Shock
  • Medium to high rate of fatalities from burns
  • Eye damage or blindness possible if looking in direction of blast
  • Wooden buildings smolder or ignite
  • Clothing may ignite or melt
Total26.78%
Shockwave (within metro area 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

Description
1 PSI23.04%
  • Windows shatter
  • Some trees knocked down
  • Roof damage to many buildings
  • Injuries mainly from flying glass or small objects

  • Wood frame structures collapse
  • Nearly all trees knocked down
  • Severe damage to airports and aircraft
  • Serious injuries common
  • Some fatalities
5 PSI4.21%
  • Brick and cinderblock buildings collapse
  • Utility poles snap
  • Nearly all power lines down
  • Near 100% rate of serious injuries
  • Fatalities common
10 PSI2.00%
  • Reinforced brick buildings collapse
  • Highway and train bridges collapse
  • Cars, trucks, and trains overturned or thrown
  • High rate of fatalities
20 PSI1.30%
  • Multistory steel-framed buildings (skyscrapers) collapse
  • Virtually no buildings left standing
  • Ships sink or capsize
  • Near 100% rate of fatalities

Radiation Blast (within metro area boundaries.)
The area close to the blast will be hit by powerful gamma rays. These gamma rays don't travel very far before becoming too weak to be dangerous. When living organisms are hit by gamma ray radiation, the effects can be harmful or fatal.

Fallout (within metro area 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.
