English: Effects of hiroshima bomb. Residual radiation is not taken to this graph. 5 PSI (5 pounds per square inch, 350 kPa) wooden houses destroyed, 1 PSI partially destruction, effect same than 33 m/s storm, 0.1 psi many glass windows shattered. Red circle, skin has 50% of 2:n degree burns (bladders), yellow 1. degree burns possible (painful, red skin). Hatched area is 500 rem initial radiation, that is 50-80 % dead.
