Found this interesting website that using Google earth allows you to see the effects of a Nuclear weapon dropped on your town. Just enter data and click detonate pretty crazy.

FYI there are three modes of delivery: Air burst (fire ball explodes in air and touches the ground; Ground: weapon strikes ground then goes "bang" and sub-surface (blows up under water and it is the bubble that does all the damage).

Of course this simulator doesn't take into effect the weather, rain, wind etc.. rain (even though a weapon will create it's own "black rain" would tend to keep the radioactive fallout primarily alpha particles on the ground) wind would be the big risk as it would carry the blast residue east depositing contamination as it went.

Most weapons would be in kilo ton range unlike the mega ton (which equals one million tons of TNT)

so, dig out your survival rations and remember when you see the flash to "duck & cover"!

The editorial police strikes again... :rofl:

Thats a big negative ghost rider. User error on the posting is more likely.
