Cartography Boom

Someone has used Google Maps to make a web page showing the size of a nuclear explosion for seven different historical or current nuclear weapons, centered on any address.

Detonating a B61 in my driveway would cause an explosion that reached the near edge of Buford Park.

If someone detonated a "suitcase bomb" in a big city near you, would you be inside the explosion? Now you can know!

Heh heh heh, I chose "Asteroid" first, and wiped out America. Good to know.
