120 micro Sv/h at Koriyama station.


FCT (Fukushima chuou TV), a local TV channel in Fukushima reported a hot spot in front of Koriyama station, JR line.

It’s one of the major stations in North Japan. Local train lines and Shinkansen (bullet trains) stops at there.

More than 16,000 people use the station everyday.

The radioactive contamination is in a shrubbery in front of the station.

The color of the trees were changed.

The TV station reported it was 80 micro Sv/h, but before they came, a station staff measured it.

It was 120 micro Sv/h. (The female reporter should have worn a mask at least.)

So far,there has been no official comment from the local government. They only said they will continue surveying,which means nothing.

FCT warns please don’t get close to the point.

However, there should be countless number of those hot spots in Japan.


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.
