Nuclear Accident Photos

With over 400 nuclear power plants in 30 countries, the threat of nuclear and radiation accidents has been an issue of permanent public, scientific, economic and political debate since the early years after the Second World War. Nuclear accident photos show epa's high profile coverage of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in 2011 initiated by a tsunami off the Pacific coast. Furthermore, epa keeps a sharp eye on the yearly commemorative events around the 1986 Chernobyl disaster that has remained in collective consciousness ever since.
