The Chernobyl Wildfires Are 2020's Latest Little 'Surprise'

In case anyone was still waiting for an April disaster to happen, perhaps this is it! 

For anyone not yet in the know, forest fires began burning on April 4th in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone in Ukraine. The fires came dangerously close to the site of the infamous Chernobyl disaster of 1986, and have released radioactive contamination into the air. The good news is that the fires have been contained, although the area has since been deemed the most polluted in the world. 

What else could go wrong in 2020!

Earthquakes are arguably the most terrifying of all the natural disasters due to their unexpected nature - unlike tornadoes or hurricanes, it's nearly impossible to plan for an earthquake or know when one is about to strike. This particular earthquake, which occurred in Japan in 2011, was followed by a tsunami and the infamous Fukushima reactor meltdowns. It was the most powerful earthquake ever recorded in Japan.

And of course, we gotta give props to the brave person who filmed the whole terrifying event from an airport!
