Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.
Only one of two nuclear accidents classified as Level 7 on the International Nuclear Event scale (Fukushima Daiichi in Japan in 2011 being the other), the Chernobyl disaster on April 26, 1986 caused about a 1,000-square mile zone to be officially declared as an “Area of Absolute (Mandatory) Resettlement”. A few hundred people defied the orders and still live within the exclusion zone, but most of the villages have been abandoned. Among the resettlement included a new Lubyanka, built much closer to Kiev.
