Are there any remaining effects from the nuclear bombs dropped in WWII?

    No. In fact, most of the “residual radiation” from the nuclear blasts in Japan had dissipated just one month after the bombs were dropped. This is according to reports from American inspectors who swept the area with geiger counters to check the safety for American occupying troops. The reason for the quick dissipation of the radioactive fall out lies in the fact that the bombs were dropped above the city–hundreds of feet high–rather than on the city, on street level. This meant that although the blast of the bomb would have maximum effect on the city, the radioactive material would not be concentrated in such a way to have lasting effects.
