      One of the most haunting things I've ever seen. Wow.

            I guess it was exaggerated but did these people really disappear in thin air?

            I mean waht actually happened?

            I dont have the time to flip through all the pages.

            Can someone give a brief synopsis of it?

            Please and thank you.

              Maintenance being done on reactor goes wrong.

              Radiation leaks out. Well, more like explodes out.

              Soviets decide to relocate entire town.

              They quarantine the area.

              They didn't disappear, but we're moved out.

              The History Channel had a show about it. Sort of freaky. One day you're living your life, you go to bed and the next morning you are being bused out without any of your belongings and no explanation.

                    Gup,

                    Minor nit to pick.

                    3500 stayed in the area against the advice of authorities.

                    300-400 of them still alive.

                    My kids are from the Ukraine.
                    And, frankly, it has never occured to me that "winning" a debate is important, or that I should be hurt when someone like Airshark or kah, among others (for whom winning a pseudo debate or declaring intellectual superiority over invisible others is obviously very important) ridicule me.

                      whoops, that is right because the town was around 50,000 if I am not mistaken?

                        Indeed. Evacuated in less than 24 hours.

                        Amazing.

                        I bet that hanging laundry is pretty sun-drenched by now.

                            I remember the world news that day, but having no idea or understand the magnatude of what had happened. I was more concerned with work, and who I was drinking with that upcoming weekend.

                            Wow...amazing.

                            Great site, thanks for sharing. It sucks that she didn't leave an address book or something like that.

                            Helps to remind you to reflect on what you do have now...and to appriciate it. Well it did for me anyway.

                            For anyone that hasn't clicked on that link by now, I recommend you to do so (I wasn't going to, but I'm glad that I did), even if you don't know anything about what happened. It brings an entire new persepective on the events, and what those people went through at the time, and the area today.

                              I was 13 and remember it happening but really did not understand it till maybe 5 years later when I understood what it did. Why I was still unsure of though.
