St. George, Utah, 1953 Look out your window What do you see?
***** Harry And winds that mean no harm
Nice big mushroom cloud Gonna dust your farm
During the early 1950s, St. George, Utah received a majority of the fallout that occurred at the Yucca Flats northwest of Las Vegas during the nuclear testing period of weapons development. The winds routinely carried the radiation to this area, resulting in a significant increase of cancer in the general population.
