Atomic bombs have only been used in combat twice. The US dropped two bombs, one on Nagasaki, one on Hiroshima.
Against the Japanese city of Hiroshima, on 6th August 1945.

It was dropped August 6, 1945 at 8:15 A.M.. The bomb dropped on Nagasaki was dropped August 9, 1945 at 11:02 A.M.
It was all chaos. The devastation on vegetation, the wounded with this new illness were treated but many of them died. As the place was flatened there were no food until ships… brought it.
Hiroshima and Nagasaki Japan. It was also tested in the Southwest US and out in the Pacific Ocean.
The Manhattan Project was the top-secret project that was developing an atomic bomb. Two were created. It was so top-secret that not even President Franklin Roosevelt's Vice P…resident, Harry Truman, knew about it. The war in the Pacific had been going on for a while since Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, and the United States already had control of the many islands they took over in the Pacific using their island hopping strategy. When Roosevelt died, Vice President Truman became President. As President, he was informed about the Manhattan Project. The United States had been planning on invading Japan, which is why they had been taking over islands in the Pacific, so they could invade from a near-by island. When Truman found out about the atomic bomb, he decided that dropping the bomb would force Japan to surrender and the war would be over. If the United States had invaded Japan, many more lives would have been lost, American and Japanese. After the United States dropped the first bomb on Hiroshima, Japan still did not surrender. Three days later, the US dropped the second bomb on Nagasaki, forcing Japan to surrender. Japan was oblivious to the fact that we only had two bombs at the time, and decided to surrender on September 2, 1945, ending World War II.
Hiroshima August 6th 1945 & Nagasaki August 9th 1945
It was President Truman who made the decision to go ahead with the attack which had been in preparation even before he became president.
Your question has no easy answer, it depends on many variables including: . Yield of bomb . Burst height/depth . Weather . Terrain . If burst is subsurface, the materia…l around it (dirt, water, rock, concrete, etc.) . Construction of nearby buildings . Fallout path & density . etc.
I live in a city of about 60,000. There were five air raid sirens on roofs of large buildings around town when I was a kid, and they used to test them at noon every Tuesday. A… very eerie sound. There were yellow and black Civil Defense signs in many public buildings, directing people to the basement in the event of an air raid. Food, water and blankets were supposed to be stored in these air raid shelters too, and medical supplies, including morphine, until the junkies broke in and stole the morphine. We used to have "air raid drills" when I was in elementary school. Sometimes we'd go out in the hallway and sit down on the floor with our backs to the walls, other times we'd all crowd into the "big room", which was a windowless room at the front of the lower level of the building, below ground level on that end. When I was young I worked in the Greyhound Bus Station and found an old yellow and black Civil Defense Geiger Counter in the ravaged remains of what had been the "bomb shelter" in the basement of the Bus Station. New in the box. I took it home, and later donated it to the physics lab at the local university. They did not have a Geiger Counter ("Radiological Dosimeter"). Lots of Americans dug air raid shelters in their backyards in the 50s, and you could go to places like Sears and buy a prefab unit to bury out back. And not any of this would have been the least little bit of help. All the crowding into public air raid shelters would have just made it easier to find the corpses afterward. Somewhere in my childhood they stopped testing the air raid sirens every Tuesday. The government had said we were a Class II nuclear target, due to our proximity to other high priority targets, and the fact that most Russian missiles had ten separate warheads - each its own bomb - which had to be dispersed in a radius of less than four hundred miles. Ballistic missiles fly about six thousand miles an hour, so they said we could expect twenty minutes warning, at the most, before the detonations. You would not be able to get anywhere. You cant get out of town in twenty minutes when the roads aren't clogged with people trying to flee for their lives. When I was about twenty, one Saturday morning, as I lay hungover in bed, some fool said "Hey, what's this" and pushed the button that activated the air raid sirens, which had not been tested for several years, and never on a Saturday. I half woke, decided that twenty minutes was not going to do me much good from where i was, and decided to die in bed. So, how to prepare. Here's what we told one another: put your head between your legs, and kiss your butt goodbye.

Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan
In World War 2
After months of bombing cities in Japan, the US issued an ultimatum called the Potsdam Declaration of July 26, 1945 demanding that Japan surrender. The Japanese government ign…ored this demand. The US dropped the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima on August 6; then the second on Nagasaki on August 9. On August 15, Japan announced its surrender and on September 2, 1945 Japan signed an Instrument of Surrender, officially ending the war. The US's official justification was that it would save many more lives than it cost by ending the war, but most people just wanted the war to end period. The secondary goal was to let it be known that it would be much too costly in lives to wage war in the future and hoped that the atomic bomb would be the ultimate deterrent.
