Nuclear Explosion Destruction Statistics

1 Megaton Air-Burst Blast Effective RadiusMiles from Hypocenter
An air-burst is a bomb explosion that occurs in the air. An air-burst blast’s overpressure is spread out over a larger area and can cause twice as much destruction because they cover twice the area.
Complete Destruction2.8 miles
Severe Damage2.8 – 4.1 miles
Moderate Damage4.1 – 7.3 miles
Light Damage7.3 – 11.2 miles

* For impact or death to occur at the stated overpressure, the body must be thrown at least 10 feet before impact. Otherwise, a higher overpressure is required to achieve necessary velocity.** Glass fragments must also travel at least 10 feet
The Hiroshima atomic bomb was approximately 15 kilotons of TNT dynamite
A 1 Megaton bomb equals 1,000,000 tons of TNT dynamite
