  • What are the radiation levels in the zone?

The zone average is about 40 microroentgens, though that doesnt tell you much at all. Radiation exposure can vary radically within just a few steps because the contamination was very patchy. In some places, like the Red Forest, radiation exposure can be as high as 1 roentgen, which is more than 50,000 times normal background. In the ghost town of Pripyat, they can exceed a milliroentgen, though most readings hover around several hundred microroentgens. In other places, like the village of Ladyzhychi on the left bank of the Pripyat River, levels are completely normal.
