Sites expressing general concern about nuclear power, nuclear energy, nuclear materials or nuclear weapons should be listed in Society/Issues/Environment/Nuclear or related categories.
Before submitting a site, be sure to read the category description.

This category is for sites concerned with the nuclear accident that happened on April 25, 1986 in Chernobyl in the former USSR (now Ukraine).
The Chernobyl nuclear power plant located 80 miles north of Kiev had 4 reactors and whilst testing reactor number 4 numerous safety procedures were disregarded. At 01:23am the chain reaction in the reactor became out of control creating explosions and a fireball which blew off the reactor's heavy steel and concrete lid.
The Chernobyl accident killed more than 30 people immediately, and as a result of the high radiation levels in the surrounding 20-mile radius, 135'000 people had to be evacuated.

This category is for sites concerned with the criticality accident that happened on September 30, 1999 in the Tokaimura nuclear fuel processing plant, Japan, when a combination of human errors and breaches of the approved safety guidelines resulted in a limited uncontrolled nuclear chain reaction, or nuclear criticality, triggering the emission of radiation and the release of radioactive material into the air in the facility.
The worst nuclear accident in the UK was a fire at Windscale in October 1957.
