Πως είναι μια ξαφνική εκκένωση μιας ολόκληρης περιοχής; Αφού όλοι έχουν φύγει, πως είναι οι περιοχές που έχουν εγκαταλειφθεί; Ο φωτογράφος του Associated Press David Guttenfelder βρέθηκε για λογαριασμό του National Geographic στην αποκλεισμένη ζώνη γύρω από το πυρηνικό εργοστάσιο της Φουκοσίμα. Η εκκένωση άρχισε λίγο μετά το μεγάλο σεισμό της 11 Μαρτίου 2011 και το τσουνάμι που οδήγησε σε μία από τις χειρότερες κρίσεις πυρηνικής διαρροής και πολλά έχουν παραμείνει ανέπαφα, από τα τρόφιμα στα ράφια των σούπερ μάρκετ μέχρι τις παιδικές τσάντες στις σχολικές αίθουσες. Είναι πιθανό η περιοχή να έχει την ίδια τύχη με αυτήν της πόλης Pripyat στην Ουκρανία 25 χρόνια μετά το ατύχημα στο Τσερνομπίλ.

Weeks after authorities had searched for victims and started recovery in other tsunami-hit regions, cleanup crews hadn’t yet been dispatched around the crippled reactors because of high radiation levels.

In this June 8, 2011 photo, residents wearing protective suits gather in a gym in Hirono, Japan for a briefing before being escorted to their homes inside the exclusion zone to retrieve a few small items. The government allowed strictly controlled visits by residents and each person had to be tightly screened for radioactive contamination upon return.

In this June 7, 2011 photo, residents of a nursing home in Itate, Japan rest in a community room. Itate is located northwest, and just outside of the official nuclear exclusion zone but registers some of the highest levels of radiation in the prefecture and was largely abandoned over the summer. Employees of the nursing home say that some residents of the nursing home elected to stay behind because they are old enough that they do not fear the long-term effects of exposure to radiation. Employees of the facility had mostly moved away but commute to work and rotate their shifts to limit their own exposure.
