5.3 μSv/h in Hitachi city Ibaraki

5.3 μSv/h in Hitachi city Ibaraki

On 4/10/2013, high level of radiation was measured in the park of north part of Hitachi city Ibaraki.

It is assumed that radioactive material is accumulated with the water. The radiation level was up to 5.3μSv/h on the ground.

The atmospheric dose was up to 1.6 μSv/h at about 1m above the ground.

On 4/8/2013, Fukushima Diary reported this article. “[Video] Am-241 measured in the atmosphere in Hitachi city Ibaraki, 100 km from Fukushima nuclear plant [URL]”.



Thank you for your support.
Now your donation will be spent on the next research for the possibile Japanese village in Romania. (560€)
At this moment, 442 € to go.

5.3 μSv/h in Hitachi city Ibaraki

Le 10 avril 2013, un haut niveau de radioactivité a été relevé dans le parc au nord de la ville d’Hitachi à Ibaraki.

On suppose que la radioactivité s’est accumulée dans l’eau. Le niveau de radioactivité atteignait jusqu’à 5,3 μSv/h au sol.
La dose ambiante montait jusqu’à 1,6 μSv/h à environ 1 m du sol.
Le 8 avril 2013, le Fukushima publiait cet article : [Vidéo] De l’américium 241 dans l’air de la ville d’Hitachi à Ibaraki, à 100 km de la centrale nucléaire de Fukushima.



Merci pour votre aide.
Vos dons vont à présent servir à la prochaine recherche, l’établissement d’un village japonais en Roumanie. (560 €)
Pour l’instant, il manque 442 € .

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.
