Chernobyl nuclear plant roof collapses; WORLDBULLETINS.
A 6,500sqft section of the roof over the turbine hall at the fourth power block fell in under heavy snowfall.
A plant spokeswoman said the affected area is about 165ft away from the "sarcophagus," a shelter built shortly after the 1986 disaster to contain radiation emanating from the exploded reactor.
She said the radiation levels were normal and there was no danger to the public.
"Everybody should be absolutely calm," she said. "Yes, it is unpleasant, but there is no danger."
