Interesting picture, but I don't really understand it fully. For example in the table it says that 20 psi peak overpressure is nearly 100% deadly while it in the text says that 35-45 psi only causes 1% fatalities. Am I missing something?

And I really doubt that fatalities are widespread at wind speeds around 160 mph unless debris is involved. But maybe it is the overpreassure that is the deadly part, but that shouldn't be a problem in long durations. But long in explosion terms is probably a lot shorter than what I think "long" is.

The pressure is not as bad as flying debris. Hopefully the supergirl will only release a playful puff, and not an explosive blast.

this is probably too far off topic to continue. Can search "blast injury vs psi" if interested.
