Providing you survive the blast ( just like surviving a blast from any bomb) and you get into shelter before any fallout starts to fall you have a reasonable chance of surviving.

Now even if you were to survive such a disaster, would you want to be around trying to find uncontaminated food, water and ground so that your not irradiated by the leftover radioactive contamination that will be abundant and in everything that would be left???
Id rather not be.

Actually, during the Cold War, when the US was testing Nukes on Live US Soldiers to see if they would survive & be able to continue fighting....
A platoon of US soldiers were "actually at 1000m distance from ground Zero" & had to duck for cover behind a rock & those that could not find a rock to get behind, had to lay flat on the ground.
They all survived & then continued their manouvers onto & beyond the actual Blast sight.

It does not 'wash away'. The fallout IS the rain. You can always tell because the rain will most likely be black or darkened in colour. Drink it and you'll die. Get it on your skin and you'll die.
A 1950 post-bombing study by the aforementioned Committee in Hiroshima examined the regeneration of vegetation in the hypocenter. Here, with help from the heavy rains a month after the bombings and the open space created by the leveled built environment, vegetation more numerous than pre-bombing was recorded

I think it's gonna be 10KT
How big of a package would that be?
Anyone else want to make a guess as to the yield?
