In the case of D.C. I haved to figure the “if” just went from about 5% to about %40 or thereabouts; I’m in the process of moving outside the beltway and would advise anybody living inside the beltway to do likewise.

My “city” is only about 200 yards by 400 yards so I think a nuke here would pretty much level us.

Jerome Corsi’s “Atomic Iran” has a pretty detailed account of the cnsequences of a nuke detonation in a large American city.

The calculator does thermal only, and apparently for a ground detonation.

These will get closer to reality, if you can run DOS programs. A little geekier and not as pretty, but if you really want to plan against a nuke going off near you, it’s the way to go.

I have the circular slide rule that came with the Glasstone book, plus some specialized models. I found that even being 20 miles away from an “optimum burst height” blast can break glass and scorch things.
