Quoting local news portal tv29.ru, the American news outlet further reported that Nyonoksa residents would be evacuated via train from 500 am to 700 am on Wednesday.
Another local newspaper claimed that the military have told civilians that the evacuation is not related to last week's explosion which killed five Russian nuclear specialists.
The blast took place at a naval facility on August 8, as per Al Jazeera. The facility tested ballistic missiles used by nuclear submarines. Apart from the deceased, at least three people sustained wounds due to the explosion.
