Transcript of Muhammad Z_Chernobyl

CHERNOBYL The Chernobyl disaster was a nuclear accident that occured April, 26 1986 at the at Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukrain. It is one of the worst nuclear power plant accident in history. It resulted in a severe release of radioactivity. Most fatalities from the accident were caused by radiation poisoning.The resulting fire sent a plume of radioactive fallout into the atmosphere and over an extensive geographical area, including the nearby town of Pripyat. The plume drifted over large parts of the western Soviet Union, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, and Northern Europe. Large areas in Ukraine, Belarus, and Russia had to be evacuated, with over 336,000 people resettled. The accident raised concerns about the safety of the Soviet nuclear power industry as well as nuclear power in general, slowing its expansion for a number of years while forcing the Soviet government to become less secretive.The countries of Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus have been burdened with the continuing and substantial decontamination and health care costs of the Chernobyl accident. About 30 of the workers at the power plant and fire fighters died in the surrounding weeks after the accident. About another 50 died from being on site in the following weeks after the accident. Thousands of others have contracted cancer and other similar diseases from being in the surrounding areas and receiving high doses of radiation.Although the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone and certain limited areas remain off limits, the majority of affected areas are now considered safe for settlement and economic activity.
