Here’s a simplified description of the blast zones that result from a nuclear detonation. A more detailed description is available on the NukeMap website.

Fireball: Yellow zone at very center of display. Everything in this zone is vaporized.

Moderate Blast Damage: Next zone from center, colored gray. Most residential buildings collapse, injuries are universal, fatalities are widespread.

Thermal Radiation: Next zone from center, colored yellow. Third degree burns extend throughout the layers of skin, which can cause severe scarring or disablement, and can require amputation.

Light Blast Damage: Largest zone, colored gray. Windows can be expected to break, causing many injuries in a surrounding population who comes to a window after seeing the flash of a nuclear explosion.
