The widespread devastation and heavy fall- out made Bikini all but uninhabitable. People were affected by fall-out well outside the expected limits and 'horrible white stuff' rained for several hours on a task force ship 30 miles away. 00 am sailors on board the task force ships noticed ash falling from the sky. All hands were ordered below decks and pre-arranged washing down procedures began. Fall-out was heavy too on the Marshall Islands, Rongerik, Rongelap, Ailinginae and Utirik. Twenty-eight American personnel were evacuated from a weather station at Rongerik on 2 March but the 64 native islanders could not be rescued until the day after.

He emphasized the enormous military benefits of the test to the United States. Then a journalist asked him how large and powerful an H-bomb might be. He replied that 'in effect it can be made as large as you wish, as large as the military requirement demands, that is to say, an H-bomb can be made as -large enough to take out a city'.
