Are you in the Fallout Zone?
Koeberg Fallout Zone
Take a look at the map below. We show which areas would need to be evacuated, using potential evacuation zones based on previous nuclear disasters in other countries. Fukishima’s evacuation zone was 20km and Chernobyl’s evacuation zone was 30km. The red circle indicates a 20km radius and the orange circle indicates a 30km radius. These are areas which would potentially be in the fallout zone and would need to be evacuated if there would be a nuclear accident.
To see the danger zones around Koeberg nuclear power station just outside Cape Town. The red and orange circles indicate areas which would be affected if there would be a nuclear accident – what is known as the fallout zone.
