I found this today and thought it was interseting. It's about Chernoyble and what it looks like in 2004

Funny you should be reading that, I read a recent article on Three Mile Island, power plant, in Pa.
shut down because of something going wrong in the plant, never went on line, what a waste of money that was!

You've been reading about TMI because this week is the 25 year anniversary of the accident there. There is no way to compare TMI with Chernobyl. The Russians didn't think a concrete containment was required around their reactors, now a couple hundred square miles around Chernobyl is non-livable. TMI damaged the core of one reactor, but the other TMI unit has been running for years without incident. The damaged unit actually was on line, but it hadn't been on very long.
We are less than 25 miles from TMI here. During the 1979 accident, I made many measurements here where I work with our millirem geiger counter, but never got any reading over normal background. I sure wouldn't have wanted to be less than 25 miles from Chernobyl taking the same readings.
