30. At Ground Zero, people did incinerate and become ash
Outside of Ground Zero, there are varying degrees of damage. And then once the initial blast has exploded, there is a firestorm in its aftermath.

And due to the weirdness of radiation - a person's injuries also depend on what they are wearing - you might end up seriously burned if you wear black or dark clothing, or less seriously burned if you wear white.

Then if the initial blast, and secondary firestorm don't get the victim, the survivor probably will succumb to radiation sickness. Over the next few weeks.

After that, the survivors are still at risk for cancer.

BTW the massive amounts of radioactive particles circling our globe are at least five times greater now than they were the day before the first nuclear explosion!!
