HYDESim is a map tool that overlays blast measures on a Google map of your choice. Just enter your address and type in "2" next to kilotons to see what a North Korean nuclear strike could do to your hometown. The tool maps overpressure and predicts structural damage, not fallout or thermal damage.

The concentric circles around your target indicate damage levels ranging from "complete destruction of concrete reinforced structures" to "most glass surfaces will shatter."
