^Yes it is. Though I must say it was the first - and next to the fall of the Wall most influencial - global event experienced in my 80' s childhood (our region was also mediumly strong affected by fallout, we kids were not to play outside when it rained, the sandbox was taboo, we didn't eat any fruits/veggies from our garden etc. My colleague, who lived at the time in Minsk, Belarus, told me about how it was there, besides some squads washing the streets with a special foam - maybe twice - not much happened, although radiation levels were quite well known, everybody listened to Western radio, or let others fluent in English/German translate them the reports. For example people still ate their self-grown things, went for mushrooms to the woods etc.)
