For the sake of accurate reporting, you should know that Chernobyl is not a city as stated in the article, but rather just the name of the plant. The city nearest to the plant is Pripyat.

Thanks for commenting! Chernobyl and Pripyat are both cities, though Pripyat is closer to the power plant. In this case, the measurement we're referring to was taken in the city of Chernobyl.

"Chernobyl, also called Chornobyl, is a partially abandoned city in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, situated in the Ivankiv Raion of northern Kiev Oblast, Ukraine. Chernobyl is about 90 kilometres north of Kiev, and 160 kilometres southwest of the Belarusian city of Gomel." So yes, Chernobyl is a city as well.

for the sake of accurate reporting, it is actually called "Vladimir Ilyich Lenin Nuclear Power Plant"
is it really that hard to open a wikipedia page or does ego really take that much of precedence over curiosity/intelect ?
