A notable exception was the accidental exposure of inhabitants of the Marshall Islands to fallout from the detonation of a nuclear device in 1954. Exposures prior to evacuation were estimated to be < 2 Gy in the most severely exposed, with beta burns and mild depression of blood counts being the predominant acute effects.
