In Blood Stepped In So Far

  1. About 493,000 people would die and 506,000 would be injured — one million casualties.
  2. The fireball radius would be roughly half a mile across and would vaporize everything within it.
  3. Moderate damage (compared to the fireball) would envelop city limits, flattening virtually every building and killing or maiming virtually every living thing.
  4. Light damage (compared to the moderate damage described above) would extend to where I live, about twelve miles from the fireball, and at the very least include shattered windows. At this distance, harm from heat and radiation would depend on blast altitude and atmospheric conditions.
