At the time of the evacuation the inhabitants fled from the radioactive cloud and must leave everything. 134.000 people have been forced to evacuate. Once a month, residents of the evacuated towns have special permission from the authorities to return to their homes to check that everything is in place and takes their personal belongings. A recent survey done among the evacuees has determined that 80% of the people was absolutely not aware of what was going on and had no information on the type of protection to be taken.
