What was the damages and deaths of hiroshima?
half of the city vanished. According to U.S. estimates, 60,000 to 70,000 people were killed or missing, 140,000 were injuried many more were made homeless as a result of the bomb. Deadly radiation reached over 100,000. In the blast, thousands died instantly.
The city was unbelievably devastated. Of its 90,000 buildings, over 60,000 were demolished.
It was difficult to determine the cost of the damages from the atom bomb dropped on Hiroshima because on September 17, 1945, Hiroshima was struck by the Makurazaki Typhoon which further damaged Hiroshima soon after the atom bomb damaged the city. The typhoon was estimated to do more monetary damage than the bomb to the physical part of the city.
In Nagasaki immediate deaths range from 40,000 to 75,000. Total deaths by the end of 1945 may have reached 80,000. In Hiroshima 70,000--80,000 people, or about 30% of the population of Hiroshima were killed by the blast and resultant firestorm, and another 70,000 injured. Over 90% of the doctors and 93% of the nurses in Hiroshima were killed or injured. Most had been in the downtown area which received the greatest damage.
Hiroshima was about 75% to 80% destroyed by one MK-I bomb. Nagasaki was about 65% to 70% destroyed by one MK-III bomb. Each of the cities firebombed was over 90% destroyed by conventional incendiaries dropped by 500 to 1000 bombers. Average deaths at Hiroshima & Nagasaki was around 100,000 each. Average deaths at each of the cities firebombed with conventional incendiaries was over 125,000 each. Also, there are photos on the internet.
Within the first two to four months of the bombings, the acute effects killed 90,000-166,000 people in Hiroshima and 60,000-80,000 in Nagasaki, with roughly half of the deaths in each city occurring on the first day.Within the first two to four months of the bombings, the acute effects killed 90,000-166,000 people in Hiroshima and 60,000-80,000 in Nagasaki, with roughly half of the deaths in each city occurring on the first day.
Answer The 30-Million is too high for the two nuclear bombs. Here are some estimates for the death toll at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In 1946, the Manhattan Engineer District published a study that concluded that 66,000 people were killed at Hiroshima out of a population of 255,000. The Committee for the Compilation of Materials on Damage Caused by the Atomic Bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki estimated in 1978 that 346,000-356,000 people were present in Hiroshima…
None. The first was a test in New Mexico. The second, dropped on the city of Hiroshima caused ABOUT 130,000 deaths. The second, on Nagasaki, caused about 80,000 deaths. Collectively, about 1,100,000 deaths all together. This is about one-half (at the most conservative estimate) of the lives that would have been lost in the invasion of Japan.
Upon impact, 70,000 people were killed instantly and another 70,000 injured. At that time, Hiroshima had a population of around 255,000. It's believed that there were around 140,000 deaths in total. Some died during the actual bombing and some died later from radiation poisoning, cancer, or leukemia.
WOW, the only answer to this would be quite literally the entire world. The bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were the first use (other than testing) of nuclear weapons, and the result was the policy of Mutually Assured Destruction (as well as the more obvious- deaths of millions and radioactive poisoning of even more people, plants and animals.)
