Breaking News: Yokohama city gov decided not to do anything for strontium

It turned out that Yokohama city government had received the report of the measurement of Strontium-90 in mid September.

It was asked in the city council but an “expert” of Yokohama City University ,Inoue Tomio asserted that additional measurement is not needed because the air dose is low.

It is impressive that the “expert” did not even know strontium-90 emits beta radiation.

Having the advice, Yokohama city government declined additional measurement of Strontium.

Successfully, strontium got the permanent residency in Yokohama.(Source)(Source)

Also, the news broadcasting organization IWJ run by Iwakami Yasumi, which reported measurement of strontium, was banned to attend the press conference of Yokohama city “government”.

Probably plutonium will be found in Tokyo or Yokohama soon.

However, it is highly likely they will not do anything to protect the citizens.

The video below is the athletic festival of a kindergarten in Yokohama held in October.

The soil around shows 0.95 uSv/h.

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.
