Deserted Streets In Nuclear Exclusion Zone As Towns Are Abandoned

MINAMISOMA, JAPAN - APRIL 07: A Japanese Policeman wearing a protective suit stands guard as search for tsunami victims continues within the exclusion zone, about 12 miles (20 kilometers) away from Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant on April 7, 2011 in Minamisoma, Fukushima Prefecture, Japan. The 9.0 magnitude strong earthquake struck offshore on March 11 at 2:46pm local time, triggering a tsunami wave of up to ten metres which engulfed large parts of north-eastern Japan, and also damaging the Fukushima nuclear plant and threatening a nuclear catastrophe. The death toll continues to rise with numbers of dead and missing exceeding 20,000 in a tragedy not seen since World War II in Japan. (Photo by Athit Perawongmetha/Getty Images)
