Some places are "safe" already and people have moved back. The immediate area wasn't the only place affected unfortunately. The cloud from it drifted.
Some of the places have safe levels but the soil and water are no good. I think there was another site like that one with pictures from a person traveling through the area? or it may be the same one, it's been several months since I looked through all the pictures. Anyways the one person mentions the grass in some areas as being "bitter". It looked weird and dried out too.

She and others are safe if they're just passing through, safe from vagrants lurking in some of those old buildings might be another matter. Either it was that site or another but the person had a geiger counter with them, and mentioned how much radiation per hour was safe for them to be in an area.
Interesting bit of info, do you know we're being bombarded with radiation everyday? From the sun, the earth, and from our electronics.
