What were the effects of the atomic bomb on the people living in Hiroshima?
The people that did not get affected by the large explosion were affected by the high radiation. The radiation dug into their skin (the heat they felt) and caused cancer later in life if they survived. The radiation killed all the animals all around and poisoned the plants all around which died instantly along with anything in a one hundred feet zone. Anyone around there a few days after the explosion would also become victims of the radiation which lingers in the air.
A lot of people died due to contact to the temperature of the explosion. Some of the people who lived after the explosion died due to radiation poisoning. The amount of deaths due to the atomic bomb was around 360,000 when we dropped the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. To sum it up, the effects were devestating.
