60 year anniversary - Hiroshima

Sixty years ago today.

The devastation is described here, including descriptions of building damage at various distances from ground zero.

A similar description of potential damage radii from a nuclear explosion in Manhattan today is found here. The devastation is almost too horrific to contemplate.
