    For example, the nuclear cloud from a 1 Mt surface burst will stabilize at an altitude of over 20 kilometers (km) and will have a mean lateral diameter of 35 km. Types of Bursts. The relative effects of blast, heat, and nuclear radiation will largely be determined by the altitude at which the weapon is detonated.

      Nuclear explosions can cause significant damage and casualties from blast, heat, and radiation but you can keep your family safe by knowing what to do and being prepared if it occurs. A nuclear weapon is a device that uses a nuclear reaction to create an explosion. Nuclear devices range from a small portable device carried by an individual to a weapon carried by a missile.

It was originally planned to have two 1,MW (output) reactors operated by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA). The steam turbine-generator sets were provided by General Electric.

With a top priority of safety and security, nuclear power is key to achieving TVA’s mission of energy, environmental stewardship and economic development to make life better for the Tennessee Valley. This is an argument against nuclear power for Townsville, probing for a better decision.
