What Is The Deadliest City On Earth?
I found this request by Rodney Southern and my first thought was correct after much research.
Many people will automatically think war or crime ridden cities would be in this.
No, this city is now uninhabited but is still killing people. Every year more people die from what this city gave them-cancer.
You are wondering what city I am speaking of?
Take a look at a few of these pictures and see if you know.
Do You Know?
It doesn't look very deadly does it?
Many of the people would have never even considered it.
Here are some pictures of people who were victims:
The Answer Is:
This disaster killed at least 9,000 people and displaced thousands more.
For those of you that don't know what happened there, it was a nuclear accident at a plant in Chernobyl.
This all happened in 1986. There is still fallout, but people are able to go there for short times. They are also taking a chance of contracting cancer.
There are even some people living there now, but I am sure life expectancy is very low.
Yep Rodney, Chernobyl is the deadliest city in the world.
