Breaking News: 57.5 microSv/h in Chiba


In one of the worst hot spots, Kashiwa Chiba, they measured 57.5 microSv/h.

It is an empty area surrounded by houses or factories.

10/18/2011, citizens reported they measured 20 micro Sv/h to the city government.

When they dug the ground 20cm deep, it was 57.5 micro Sv/h.

They covered the spot with a seat and put sand on top of it all.

The 3m area is now a forbidden zone.

The city government states it is hard to assume that it has something to do with Fukushima because it’s higher underground.

However, radioactive particles might have sunk or government secretly abandoned radioactive debris to the area with no notice.

Actually the area is owned by the city government. Until 10 years ago, there was a municipal house there.


About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
