A Japanese amateur made a rediation map because we can’t trust the gov.
Who ; Geological scientist.(Expert in spread of ash from volcano.) from Gunma university.
How ; Plotting official monitoring data of local governments and  independent monitoring at 1m high from the ground.(more than 7000 points.)
When ; 7/26/2011
Note ; Plume keeps moving on the wind under 1km high from the ground,so the latest situation is highly likely to be different from this map.

Interview with the administrator of Fukushima nuc plants,Mr.Yoshida.
1) Tepco’s schedule has ZERO basis. It’s totally unrealistic.It’s nothing but a political performance.
2)All the units from 1~4 are equally in danger.
3)Contaminated water is the biggest problem.
4)Most probably,it’s already melt-out. Sheltering the melted fuel rods from under ground water vein must be done right now.
5)We might have to accept to die here.
6)Mandatory evacuating area must be 100km from Fukushima.

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.
