Town Near Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Plant Evacuated, IAEA Issues Warning

Russian-controlled territories around the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant have begun evacuating civilians from the area including the town adjacent to the plant. BBC reported on a chaotic evacuation taking up to 5 hours to leave the area. The town of Enerhodar predominantly housed workers for the power plant. It was not clear how much of the plant staff remains in the area.

The IAEA issued fresh warnings about the safety at the plant. There have been unverified claims over the last week that gun positions were placed on the reactor building roofs and multiple claims of explosives being set in the plant. The IAEA did warn that a significant accident could occur amid concerns of increased fighting in the area.
